This was the second meeting of our new series of weekend-long workshops aimed in particular at female Master students, PhD students and Postdocs in topology. The meeting took place at the Mathematical Institute, University of Bonn, Endenicher Allee 60.

The workshop centered around a series of three lectures by Prof. Nathalie Wahl (University of Copenhagen) on Homological stability for geometric groups. The lectures have been complemented by contributed talks and ample time for discussion. All talks where open to the public.
