The workshop will be held at the Fiesta Americana Condesa hotel in Cancún, México, between May 27 and June 4, 2016.

The first two days (May 28 and 29) will consist of minicourses on the topics of Teichmüller theory, foliations, Thurston's classification of rational maps, and quasi-conformal surgery. The minicourses will be followed by a five-day conference presenting current research (May 30-June 3).

Poster Session

There will be a poster session during the workshop. Participants interested in presenting a poster should send an email to jackfest at math.stonybrook.edu indicating the title of their poster by May 15. While we hope to be able to present posters of all interested participants, space may be a limiting factor.
