Conference celebrating the 70th birthday of Prof. Krzysztof Pawałowski
11-13 January 2021, Online conference via Zoom


Krzysztof Pawałowski

kpa70 is the conference celebrating the 70th birthday of Prof. Krzysztof M. Pawałowski.

The main topic of the conference - broadly understood smooth group actions on manifolds - reflects mathematical interests of Krzysztof Pawałowski.

The conference will be held in an online format via Zoom. If you like to participate in the conference please register (see below).

We are also very happy to announce that another conference celebrating the 70th birthday of Prof. Krzysztof M. Pawałowski, organized by Prof. Takao Satoh (Tokyo University of Science) and Prof. Shintaro Kuroki (Okayama University of Science) will be held in Fabruary. See the details here: link to the conference "kpa70+".
