Symplectic geometry - celebrating the work of Simon Donaldson

Created: 2017-08-14 09:06
Institution: Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Description: 14th August 2017 to 18th August 2017
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
