Operads and Configuration Spaces
Jun 18, 2012 to Jun 22, 2012

Location : Cité des Sciences

Location: Cité des Sciences

This is a 4 day conference which will bring together young researchers in the field of algebraic topology and homotopy theory. It will present new results and applications of configuration spaces (cell structures, compactification, fat diagonals, link spaces, classifying spaces, etc).

The conference will consist in a series of lectures given by Paolo Salvatore, Ismar Volic, Ben Walter, Jeff Giansiracusa and Christophe Cazanave.

This conference is the first to be held by MIMS. It will take place at the Cité des Sciences, in Tunis capital city.

Exact location: salle polyvalente des séminaires, résidence Abou Feher

Organizing Commitee:
Sadok Kallel (Lille-Tunis), Paolo Salvatore (Rome), Ines Saihi (Tunis), Walid Taamallah (Tunis).
