Event Details


First announcement of the conference “Symmetry and shape - Celebrating the 60th birthday of Prof. J. Berndt"

This is the first announcement of the conference “Symmetry and shape - Celebrating the 60th birthday of Prof. J. Berndt”, that will be held in Santiago de Compostela (Spain), from 28th to 31st October 2019.

The aim of this conference is to gather experts in the study of symmetry in submanifold geometry, whilst we celebrate Jürgen Berndt's 60th birthday. The conference will revolve around the study of submanifolds of symmetric spaces, homogeneous submanifolds, including cohomogeneity one and polar actions, their characterization via concepts like isoparametric submanifolds or singular Riemannian foliations, and their interaction with other topics in Differential Geometry and Geometric Analysis.
