Supported by the

Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council

London Mathematical Society

University of Sheffield

Over Thursday 25, Friday 26 and the morning of Saturday 27 October, there will be an associated Workshop, also supported by the LMS, on the theme Lie algebroids and Lie groupoids in Differential Geometry. The Workshop will focus on current work which uses Lie algebroids or Lie groupoids, specifically Poisson geometry and sigma models, gerbes and higher order geometric structures, supermanifolds, and orbifolds. Speakers include: Here are abstracts of some talks.
