The conference will bring together researchers studying the geometry of mapping class groups, with researchers studying the geometry and dynamics of Teichmüller space and related moduli spaces to discuss currents trends on the interface of these areas.

The conference will open with three introductory mini-courses:

"Complexes related to Mapping Class Groups"- Mladen Bestvina


"Introduction to dynamics on the moduli space of translation surfaces"- Barak Weiss


"Mapping class group invariant metrics on higher Teichmüller spaces"-

Martin Bridgeman and Dick Canary

In addition talks on current developments in these areas will also be given.
