Here you can find a (not complete) list of upcoming events, that I am (or have been made) aware of, related to contact and symplectic topology and geometry, and low-dimensional topology.


This list used to be a list of conferences of personal interest. However, it has proved itself to be useful to other people in geometric topology, hence now has a variety of G&T events than it used to.

Another useful resource would be the following two FB groups that I've been administering since 2012; Geometry Topology World and Women in Geometry Topology World. You're welcome to join these groups to stay up-to-date or make announcements of relevant upcoming events/jobs/news you're aware of.
