Euler course

I am in charge of this program for youth with a gift in mathematics. If your child is about 12 years old, shows a (very) high potential in mathematics, and lives in a French speaking canton, or nearby, she or he might want to take our entrance exam in late April or May.

You can find more information on the Euler course webpage:

Editorial duties

I am on the editorial board of Algebraic and Geometric Topology:

The Arolla Conference on Algebraic Topology (2016 edition) has published Proceedings of the  conference, just like it has been done with the AMS in 1999, 2004, 2008, and 2012. You can have a look at the latest proceedings here:
