Miklós Abért (Chicago): On the rank vs Heegaard genus conjecture

The rank vs Heegaard genus conjecture says that the Heegaard genus of a
hyperbolic 3manifold equals the minimal number of generators of its
fundamental group. We show how this relates to a distinguished problem in
topological dynamics, the fixed price problem. The relation is established
using profinite actions.
Paolo Ghiggini (Nantes) : Tight contact structures on Sigma(2,3,6n1)

We compute the contact invariants of all tight contact
structures on the manifolds Sigma (2,3,6n1). This is a joint work
with Jeremy Van HornMorris.
András Juhász (Cambridge) : The sutured Floer homology polytope

I will discuss what kind of geometric information
one can get about a sutured manifold using the Spin^c grading on its
sutured Floer homology.

Burak Ozbagci (Istanbul): Relative Giroux Correspondence (joint work with T. Etgu) Recently, Honda, Kazez and Matic described an adapted partial open book decomposition of a compact contact 3manifold with convex boundary by generalizing the work of Giroux in the closed case. This description induces a map from isomorphism classes of compact contact 3manifolds with convex boundaries to isomorphism classes of partial open book decompositions modulo positive stabilization. We construct the inverse of this map by describing a compact contact 3manifold with convex boundary compatible with an abstract partial open book decomposition. Consequently, combined with the work of Honda, Kazez and Matic, we obtain a relative version of Giroux correspondence.

András Stipsicz (Budapest) : A combinatorial description of the U^2=0 version of Heegaard Floer homology
 We show that every 3manifold admits a Heegaard diagram in which
a truncated version of Heegaard Floer homology (when the holomorpic
disks pass through the basepoints at most once) can be computed
combinatorially. The construction relies on the fact that a closed
3manifold can be given as a triple branched cover of S^3 along a
link.
