The focus of the 2008 NZMRI Summer Workshop was Conformal geometry and geometric approaches to partial differential equations

The themes are the use of conformal geometry, and related techniques, to study geometric and topological properties of manifolds and the use of geometric approaches to study partial differential equations.

It featured outstanding researchers, each giving a series of expository lectures surveying recent developments in the area. Lectures were accessible to a general mathematical audience.

Organisers Rod Gover, Gaven Martin, Paul-Andi Nagy, Tom ter Elst
