Here you can find a (not complete) list of upcoming events related to geometric topology, more specifically, contact/symplectic geometry and low-dimensional topology that I'm aware of.

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.

 

Feel free to email me if you'd like me to add upcoming events that you're organizing or simply know of more upcoming interesting events in the field.
