This was the third meeting of our series of weekend-long workshops aimed in particular at female Master students, PhD students and Postdocs in topology. The meeting took place at the Beckmanns Hof, Ruhr University of Bochum.


The workshop was centered around a series of three lectures by Dr. Vesna Stojanoska (MIT) on Knowns and unknowns in the world of topological modular forms.
The lectures has been complemented by contributed talks and ample time for discussion. All talks were open to the public.
