The Arbeitstagung of 2015 will have the general theme

Counting problems on moduli spaces

including such topics as Hurwitz counting problems for coverings, computations of volumes and other combinatorial invariants of moduli spaces of curves and of flat surfaces, Siegel-Veech constants, Gromov-Witten numbers, topological recursion, or dessins d'enfants. There will be mini-courses and research lectures by invited speakers including Alex Eskin, Motohico Mulase, Rahul Pandharipande, Richard Thomas, and Anton Zorich. The other lectures will be determined in the traditional way by open discussion during the meeting.

 Program

Opening lecture

Richard Thomas: The MNOP conjecture

Minicourses

Alex Eskin: Covers of Elliptic curves and quasimodular forms

Motohico Mulase: The topological recursion -- an inductive mechanism of counting on the moduli of curves

Raul Pandharipande: Cycles on the moduli space of curves

Anton Zorich: Volumes of moduli spaces in counting simple closed geodesics on flat surfaces, and in measuring diffusion in periodic billiards

The tradition of the Arbeitstagung

The Mathematische Arbeitstagung, which was started by Friedrich Hirzebruch in 1957, took place nearly every year until his retirement in 1995, and has continued bi-annually since then. Its special feature has been the unusual form of organization, with most of the speakers and topics being chosen by popular acclaim during the meeting according to the most recent and exciting developments in mathematics. Because of the changing nature of the mathematical world, we are now going to try a somewhat modified format, with some invited speakers and focusing each time on a specific theme of current interest. But we plan to keep the other traditions like the University party and the boat trip on the Rhine.

By combining introductory courses in the style of a summer school with lectures on current research we would like to bring together researchers on all levels. We encourage in particular doctoral students and postdocs to participate, and will also be able to offer limited financial support.
