Workshop on Flows, Foliations and Contact Structures

This workshop was part of the topical program "Geometric Structures on 3-Manifolds" which took place during the 2015-2016 academic year at the Institute for Advanced Study. The workshop focused on the relations between flows, 2-dimensional foliations, and contact structures on 3-manifolds. In addition, the aim was to foster interactions between the different viewpoints on these topics as well as with related invariants of 3-manifolds such as Floer homology and (circular) orderings of the fundamental group.


The workshop was organized by Ian Agol (UC Berkeley), John Etnyre (GA Tech), David Gabai (Princeton U), Peter Ozsvath (Princeton U).
