A Workshop on topological groups will take place on 3rd-4th December at Facultad de Ciencias Matemáticas at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. The Workshop will consist of three seminars (2 hours each) and various invited lectures (1 hour), as well as short talks by the participants.

Certificates of attendance will be provided on request. The Instituto de Matemática Interdisciplinar (IMI) will validate the workshop as Doctoral Course of 10 hours (1 credit).
