Abstracts follow

(1) Simplicial volume of Q-rank one locally symmetric spaces
   covered by the product of R-rank one symmetric spaces
     by Sungwoon Kim and Inkang Kim

In this paper, we show that the simplicial volume of Q-rank one locally
symmetric spaces covered by the product of Q-rank one symmetric spaces
is strictly positive.


(2) Rational tangle surgery and Xer recombination on catenanes
     by Isabel K Darcy, Kai Ishihara, Ram K Medikonduri and Koya
Shimokawa

The protein recombinase can change the knot type of circular DNA.  The
action of a recombinase converting one knot into another knot is
normally mathematically modeled by band surgery.  Band surgeries on a
2-bridge knot N((4mn-1)/2m) yielding a (2,2k)-torus link are
characterized.  We apply this and other rational tangle surgery
results to analyze Xer recombination on DNA catenanes using the tangle
model for protein-bound DNA.


(3) Homotopy normal maps
     by Matan Prezma

A group property made homotopical is a property of the corresponding
classifying space. This train of thought can lead to a homotopical
definition of normal maps between topological groups (or loop spaces).

In this paper we deal with such maps, called homotopy normal maps,
which are topological group maps from N to G G being "normal" in that
they induce a compatible topological group structure on the homotopy
quotient G//N:=EN x_N G. We develop the notion of homotopy normality
and its basic properties, and show it is invariant under homotopy
monoidal endofunctors of topological spaces, eg localizations and
completions. In the course of characterizing normality, we define a
notion of a homotopy action of a loop space on a space phrased in
terms of Segal's 1-fold delooping machine.  Homotopy actions are
"flexible" in the sense they are invariant under homotopy monoidal
functors, but can also rigidify to (strict) group actions.


(4) On the augmentation quotients of the IA-automorphism group
   of a free group
     by Takao Satoh

We study the augmentation quotients of the IA-automorphism group of a
free group and a free metabelian group.  First, for any group G, we
construct a lift of the k-th Johnson homomorphism of the automorphism
group of G to the k-th augmentation quotient of the IA-automorphism
group of G.  Then we study the images of these homomorphisms for the
case where G is a free group and a free metabelian group.  As a
corollary, we detect a Z-free part in each of the augmentation
quotients, which can not be detected by the abelianization of the
IA-automorphism group.


(5) Computation-free presentation of the fundamental group of
   generic (p,q)-torus curves
     by Enrique Artal Bartolo, Jose Ignacio Cogolludo Agustin
     and Jorge Ortigas-Galindo

We present a new method for computing fundamental groups of curve
complements using a variation of the Zariski-van Kampen method on
general ruled surfaces.  As an application we give an alternative
(computation-free) proof for the fundamental group of generic
(p,q)-torus curves.


(6) On Legendrian graphs
     by Danielle O'Donnol and Elena Pavelescu

We investigate Legendrian graphs in (R^3, xi_std).  We extend the
Thurston--Bennequin number and the rotation number to Legendrian
graphs.  We prove that a graph can be Legendrian realized with all its
cycles Legendrian unknots with tb=-1 and rot=0 if and only if it does
not contain K_4 as a minor.  We show that the pair (tb, rot) does not
characterize a Legendrian graph up to Legendrian isotopy if the graph
contains a cut edge or a cut vertex.  When we restrict to planar
spatial graphs, a pair (tb, rot) determines two Legendrian isotopy
classes of the lollipop graph and a pair (tb, rot) determines four
Legendrian isotopy classes of the handcuff graph.


(7) A Jorgensen-Thurston theorem for homomorphisms
     by Yi Liu

We provide a description of the structure of the set of homomorphisms
from a finitely generated group to any torsion-free (3-dimensional)
Kleinian group with uniformly bounded finite covolume. This is
analogous to the Jorgensen-Thurston Theorem in hyperbolic geometry.


(8) Localization theorems in topological Hochschild homology
   and topological cyclic homology
     by Andrew J Blumberg and Michael A Mandell

We construct localization cofibration sequences for the topological
Hochschild homology (THH) and topological cyclic homology (TC) of
small spectral categories.  Using a global construction of the THH and
TC of a scheme in terms of the perfect complexes in a spectrally
enriched version of the category of unbounded complexes, the sequences
specialize to localization cofibration sequences associated to the
inclusion of an open subscheme.  These are the targets of the
cyclotomic trace from the localization sequence of Thomason-Trobaugh
in K-theory.  We also deduce versions of Thomason's blow-up formula
and the projective bundle formula for THH and TC.


(9) Lagrangian spheres, symplectic surfaces and the symplectic
   mapping class group
     by Tian-Jun Li and Weiwei Wu

Given a Lagrangian sphere in a symplectic 4-manifold (M,omega) with
b^+=1, we find embedded symplectic surfaces intersecting it
minimally. When the Kodaira dimension kappa of (M,omega) is -infty,
this minimal intersection property turns out to be very powerful for
both the uniqueness and existence problems of Lagrangian spheres. On
the uniqueness side, for a symplectic rational manifold and any class
which is not characteristic, we show that homologous Lagrangian
spheres are smoothly isotopic, and when the Euler number is less than
8, we generalize Hind and Evans' Hamiltonian uniqueness in the
monotone case.  On the existence side, when kappa=-infinity, we give a
characterization of classes represented by Lagrangian spheres, which
enables us to describe the non-Torelli part of the symplectic mapping
class group.
