This volume presents the proceedings of a conference on differential geometry held in honour of the 60th birthday of A M Naveira. The meeting brought together distinguished researchers from a variety of areas in Riemannian geometry. The topics include: geometry of the curvature tensor, variational problems for geometric functionals such as Willmore–Chen tension, volume and energy of foliations and vector fields, and energy of maps. Many papers concern special submanifolds in Riemannian and Lorentzian manifolds, such as those with constant mean (scalar, Gauss, etc.) curvature and those with finite total curvature.
