Organisers: Richard Thomas (Imperial), Dusa McDuff (Barnard), Dietmar Salamon (ETH Zürich), Paul Seidel (MIT), Nicholas Woodhouse (ex officio, Clay Mathematics Institute) Workshop Theme A week-long meeting of the world's experts in symplectic geometry and neighbouring fields. We will be celebrating the 60th birthday of Sir Simon Donaldson FRS and his profound influence on the subject. A characteristic of both his work and this meeting will be the influence of (and on) other fields, such as low dimensional topology, algebraic geometry, geometric analysis and theoretical physics. This is a joint INI - CMI workshop. The organisers expect that additional funding from the NSF will be available to support the participation of US-based researchers. Participants interested in being supported from that NSF grant need to fill out a separate application for that, see https://tinyurl.com/SYGW05 Speakers to include: Mina Aganagic (Berkeley) Sir Michael Atiyah (Edinburgh) Denis Auroux (Berkeley) Kenji Fukaya (Stony Brook) Mikhail Gromov (IHES, Paris) Nigel Hitchin (Oxford) Eleny Ionel (Stanford) Frances Kirwan (Oxford) Peter Kronheimer (Harvard) Dusa McDuff (Barnard) Emmy Murphy (MIT) Tom Mrowka (MIT) Peter Ozsváth (Princeton) John Pardon (Princeton) Zoltán Szabó (Princeton) Paul Seidel (MIT) Ivan Smith (Cambridge) Song Sun (Stony Brook) Thomas Walpuski (MIT) Katrin Wehrheim (Berkeley) |
