Seminar über Schleifengruppen und ihre Anwendungen in Geometrie und Physik
Borkum, 18.-23. Juni 2006
Christian Becker (Potsdam), Konrad Waldorf (Hamburg), Anna Wienhard (Basel, z.Z. Princeton)
Das Seminar richtet sich an fortgeschrittene Studenten, Doktoranden und Post-Doktoranden mit Arbeitsgebiet Differentialgeometrie oder mathematische Physik. Wir wollen die Struktur- und Darstellungstheorie von Schleifengruppen sowie deren Anwendungen in Geometrie und theoretischer Physik (insb. konforme Feldtheorie) zusammen studieren. Die Vorträge werden von den Teilnehmern des Blockseminars gehalten.

Hyperbolic Operators on Lorentzian Manifolds and Quantization
Wien, November 10 - 12, 2005
Christian Bär (Potsdam), Helga Baum (Berlin), Klaus Fredenhagen (Hamburg)
The workshop will bring together mathematicians interested in geometric and analytic aspects of hyperbolic operators on Lorentzian manifolds and physicists working in quantum field theory on curved spacetimes. The aim is to discuss recent results and open problems in the field.

Smooth Fibre Bundles and Higher Torsion Invariants
Göttingen, September 1 - 7, 2003
Ulrich Bunke (Göttingen), Sebastian Goette (Regensburg), Thomas Schick (Göttingen)
In this workshop, we investigate the topology of homeomorphism and diffeomorphism groups of manifolds. Given a topological fibre bundle of smooth manifolds, we ask if the bundle admits differentiable structures, and how many different such structures exist. To this end, we will introduce and study Riemann-Roch theorems for flat vector bundles and different versions of torsion invariants for families of smooth manifolds. There are three major approaches to this topic, based on algebraic K-theory, Morse theory and on heat kernels.
The workshops aims to give concise introductions to the different flavors of higher torsion invariants for smooth fiber bundles, and cumilate in some of the important applications. It is aimed at Graduate Students who want to learn about this interesting subject, and also on experts in one of the fields, who want to learn more about the complementary approaches and the connections between them.
The workshop will lead to the point where one can follow the talks of the miniconference about recent and ongoing research about higher torsion and related questions.

Transformation Groups, Holonomy and Spinors in pseudo-Riemannian Geometry
Berlin, September 23 - 25, 2003
H. Baum (Berlin), I. Kath (Götttingen), T.Leistner (Berlin), T. Neukirchner (Berlin)
The aim of the workshop is to discuss recent results and open problems concerning pseudo-Riemannian (in particular Lorentzian) manifolds with special holonomy, special group actions and special homogeneous structures. Furthermore, we are interested in links between these structures and solutions of differential equations occuring in Geometry and Physics.

Positive scalar curvature and related topics
LMU München, 24-28 February 2004
Bernhard Hanke (LMU München), Joachim Lohkamp (Augsburg), Thomas Schick (Göttingen)
The aim of this conference is to bring together people from diverse fields, including topology, geometry and analysis - in order to discuss recent results, but also to give an overview of the subject. In this way, we enable also younger mathematicians to get in contact with experts in the field.
