The following was the first announcement for the 2017 Summer edition of Gruppen und topologische Gruppen / Groups and topological groups which will take place in Trento (Italy) on Friday 16 & Saturday 17 June, 2017.

The meeting will take place at the Department of Sociology and Social Research, which is located in the city centre, in Via Giuseppe Verdi, 26, a few metres from Piazza Duomo, and about 800m from the train station. (The Department of Mathematics is located somewhat outside town, so we have chosen this alternative and attractive location to save participants the bus rides.)

The meeting will start on Friday at around noon - a buffet lunch will be provided. On Friday night we are planning a session of wine tasting with some grub to go along. To plan the buffet lunch and the wine tasting, I will later ask you to register informally for the meeting.

The meeting will end on Saturday at midday.

Talks of 20, 30, or 40 minutes are welcome - depending on the lengths of the talks, there will be room for 8 to 10 talks - please send me your suggestions for talks at your earliest convenience.

There are several good hotels in town, in various price ranges. A non-exhaustive list includes

all within easy walking distance (3-15 minutes) from the Department of Sociology, and, slightly further away (20 minutes on foot, 10 minutes by bus), There is also a Please note that all of these ho(s)tels may be able to offer some rooms at reduced rates for people attending conferences at the University of Trento - please mention GtG / Gruppen und topologische Gruppen / Groups and topological groups when you book - and compare prices on the usual internet booking sites for good measure.

I have sent this message to the latest GtG mailing list. Please feel free to forward this message to all interested parties, and let me have your requests for additions to/deletions from the list.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Trento in June. All the best,
