Higher Geometric Structures along the Lower Rhine XIV, March 12 - 13, 2020

Posted in
Organiser(s): 
Christian Blohmann, Marius Crainic, Ioan Marcut, Ieke Moerdijk, Steffen Sagave
Date: 
Thu, 2020-03-12 12:00 - Fri, 2020-03-13 17:00
Location: 
MPIM Lecture Hall

This is the fourteenth of a series of  short workshops jointly organized by the Geometry/Topology groups in Bonn, Nijmegen, and Utrecht, all situated along the Lower Rhine. The focus lies on the development and application of new structures in geometry and topology such as Lie groupoids, differentiable stacks, Lie algebroids, generalized complex geometry, topological quantum field theories, higher categories, homotopy algebraic structures, higher operads, derived categories, and related topics.

Do you have a paper in progress that you think you could finish if only you had an uninterrupted weekend to work on it? Do you struggle with carving out the time that you need because of childcare responsibilities at home, or because you are swamped with teaching and administrative duties at work? Click here for information on how you can apply to spend the weekend of April 24 - 26 at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics finishing that paper!

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.

Workshop on "$\infty$-categories and their applications", August 17 - 21, 2020

The quest for solid foundations for $\infty$-categories started several decades ago, but from the mid-2000s there have been spectacular developments which excitingly accelerated the pace of progress. This workshop will focus on these objects, both in their foundations and in the applications to different fields of mathematics. There will be minicourses on $\infty$-categories, and also on $\infty$-operads, on algebraic K-theory and on parametrized homotopy theory, all three of which have benefited substantially from the $\infty$-categorical viewpoint.
