Welcome to the website for the Workshop on Topics in Dehn Surgery! The Workshop will focus on some of the current developments in the study of Dehn surgery, for example the application of Heegaard Floer homology theory to various questions in this area such as the Berge Conjecture. We hope to see you in April.
