Mar 23 - Mar 28, 2014

This was an extremely helpful workshop. There are several groups that use higher (i.e. parametrized) Morse theory techniques, but they don't talk to each other. This conference was the first real progress towards establishing relationships between the fields. It was a major success.

Every time I visit BIRS, I come back with a new project, new collaborator, or new development in an old project - something that can't be said about many conferences.
