ECSTATIC (Early Career Stage Topologists At Imperial College) is a two-day conference in all branches of topology, aimed primarily at young and early career stage researchers (ie Ph.D. students and postdocs) working in the field.

This year, the conference will take place on the 13th and 14th of june 2016, at Imperial College London, Sherfield Building, Read Lecture Theatre.
Please note these are a Monday and Tuesday.

We are delighted (maybe even ECSTATIC) to announce that this year's grown up speakers are Prof. Sarah Whitehouse and Prof. Andras Juhasz. We are very grateful for them agreeing to speak and very excited to hear them.

All participants are very encouraged to give a talk, either on the field they are working in or some of their own research. Don't be shy - there's usually a whole range of talks, given by a range of 'ages' - from first year students right through to postdocs!

We are also very grateful for the support of the IMA, the LMS, Imperial College London and TCC Oxford --- without whom there would be no event.
