The study of the global properties of manifolds and their symmetries has had a great impact on both geometric and algebraic topology, and also on other branches of mathematics, such as algebra, differential geometry and analysis. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together active researchers from diverse areas to discuss these exciting current perspectives on the topology of manifolds.
