Report on Topology Ecuador 2017 held at the University San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador, 14 - 18 August 2017

The conference Topology Ecuador provided a meeting point for over 60 topologists from Latin America, North America and around the world. The scope was broad, ranging from homotopy theory to noncommutative geometry, with the goal of establishing collaborations and boundary crossings both geographically and between areas of expertise. The conference created an inviting atmosphere for informal interactions going beyond sharing mathematical work. The talk “Diversity and Inclusivity in Mathematics” by Moira Chas initiated discussions about the mathematical community and raised awareness. Students got to know potential PhD supervisors and vice-versa. For the report go here.
