Swiss Knots

Knot theory and low dimensional topology in Switzerland

The Swiss Knots conferences are organised on a biennial basis with organisation rotating among participating Swiss universities. The aim of the conferences is to bring together researchers in knot theory and low dimensional topology, from Switzerland and abroad, in order to provide a forum for exchange of new ideas and as a way of keeping abreast of the most recent developments.

Topology in Switzerland has a rich history going back to its earliest origins with Euler's paper on Koenigsberg bridges regarded as one of the first academic works concerned with topological notions. In the middle of the twentieth century much activity in topology stemmed from the groups of Heinz Hopf at the ETH and Georges de Rham at EPF Lausanne and the University of Geneva.
