The Workshop will take place 22-26 June 2015 at the Mathematical Institute of the LMU in Munich. The talks will begin on Monday morning and the final talk will be on Friday before lunch. Some funding is available for young researchers and PhD-students.

**wrin⋅kle** * noun* \'riŋ-kəl\

- a small line or fold that appears on your skin as you grow older
- a small fold in the surface of clothing, paper, etc.
- a surprising or unexpected occurrence in a story or series of events

- The Mumford conjecture on the homological stability of mapping class groups. This proof (due to Eliashberg, Galatius and Mishachev) reduces the calculation of the stable homology groups to Harer stability.
- Thurston's existence theorems for foliations of codimension 2 or higher.
- Igusa's theorem about the homotopy type of the space of framed functions whose singularities are non-degenerate or of birth-death type. This plays an important role in Lurie's discussion of the cobordism hypothesis.
