Floer homology, three-manifolds, knot concordance, contact structures, Legendrian and transversal knots, and others.

In the past ten years there has been tremendous progress in the study of knots and three-dimensional manifolds. We hope to bring together experts from within and without Japan to share ideas and foster further development in this exciting field.

We thank all participants for attending the event and sharing so much exciting mathematics. We (the organizers) had a great time!


Organizing committee: Y. Bao, T. Kálmán, H. Murakami.

Sponsored by the Global Edge Institute at Tokyo Tech and the
Fund for the Development of Human Resources in Science and Technology
of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
