Infinite Monster Groups

The aim of the programme is to bring together specialists in various methods of constructing infinite groups with extreme properties.
Topics include, but are not limited to, geometric, analytic, combinatorial, algorithmic, and computational aspects of the following major classes of infinite groups:

Limits of groups with curvature (e.g. Burnside and Tarski monsters)
Golod-Schafarevich groups
Limit groups in the sense of Sela (questions related to Tarski problem)
Random groups
Infinite Kac-Moody groups
Infinite simple groups
Kähler groups
Thompson's groups
