Geometric Representation Theory

Twinned conference "Geometric Representation Theory", June 22 - 26, 2020
 

This will be a twinned conference held simultaneously at Max Planck Institute in Bonn, Germany and Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Canada. The two venues will be connected by live video streams, during both the talks themselves as well as informal discussion sessions.

In recent years, tools from algebraic geometry and mathematical physics have proven very influential in representation theory.  The most famous example is the geometric Langlands program, which is inspired by the original Langlands program in the function field case, but has also included advances in the theory of algebraic groups, Lie algebras and Cherednik algebras.  The goal of this twinned conference is to bring together experts in geometric representation theory and adjacent areas to discuss the forefront of current developments in this highly active field.

The concept of the twinned conference is motivated by the desire to reduce environmental impact of conference travels. Our hope is that this initiative will help reduce transatlantic flights, while still promoting long distance interactions.
