The Reading Seminar on Geometry aims to introduce and study interesting current topics in geometry which is interpreted quite broadly. It is open to anyone interested in related fields and encourage informal discussions between students, researchers and professors. It is organized by the research team of Prof. Jean-Marc Schlenker.
