Large scale geometry of Polish groups workshop

The topic of this workshop will be geometric group theory in a larger context. As is well known, there are close links between geometric group theory of finitely generated or locally compact groups and geometric non-linear functional analysis, i.e., the non-linear geometry of Banach spaces. While this has for a long time been seen as a number of analogies cross fertilising the two theories, the recent advent of a general framework for doing geometric group theory for Polish groups shows this to be two instances of the same theory. The workshop aims to bring together people from geometric group theory, geometry of Banach spaces and specialists on Polish groups.
