There will be a mini-workshop on applications of sub-Riemannian Geometry (in Neurosciences etc.) in the week after the conference. This will include a mini-course by Yuri Sachkov, for more details see here .

The conference is organized by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Masaryk University, together with The Association of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists, Brno branch.

The conference is supported by Elsevier. The Editorial Board meeting of the Elsevier journal
Differential Geometry and its Applications will take place during the program of the conference.

The conference is supported by Statutatory city of Brno.
The event was held under the auspices of Mayor Bc. Roman Onderka, MBA.
