This volume contains the proceedings of the 2009 conference, which includes survey and research articles concerning such areas as knot theory, contact and symplectic topology, 3manifold theory, geometric group theory, and equivariant topology. Among other highlights of the volume, a survey article by Stefan Friedl and Stefano Vidussi provides an accessible treatment of their important proof of Taubes' conjecture on symplectic structures on the product of a 3manifold and a circle, and an intriguing short article by Dennis Sullivan opens the door to the use of modern algebraictopological techniques in the study of finitedimensional models of famously difficult problems in fluid dynamics. Continuing what has become a tradition, this volume contains a report on a problem session held at the conference, discussing a variety of open problems in geometric topology. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometric topology, including knot theory, contact and symplectic topology, 3manifolds, and geometric group theory.
