The Geometry Day is a meeting intended to explore cutting-edge aspects of contemporary geometry and offer at the same time a panoramic view on a number of topics, by bringing together scholars with different backgrounds.
It takes place roughly twice a year at the Instituto de Matemática e Estatística, campus do Gragoatá, bloco H (rua professor Marcos Waldemar de Freitas Reis s/n, 24210-201 Niterói/RJ, Brazil).
