Thomas Poguntke Memorial Workshop

Thomas Poguntke passed away on September 24, 2018, after a serious illness, just a few weeks after arriving in Barcelona. He was 28 years old and about to hand in his PhD thesis (University of Bonn) on higher Segal spaces, K-theory and Hall algebras.

This workshop is dedicated to his memory and to his mathematics, which will live on.
31 January-1 February, 2019, CRM
