Twinned Conference on Homotopy Theory with Applications to Arithmetic and Geometry, June 27 - 30, 2022

The field of homotopy theory originated in the study of topological spaces up to deformation, but has since been applied effectively in several other disciplines. Indeed, homotopical ideas led to the resolution of several long-standing open conjectures, for instance on smooth structures on spheres, the moduli of curves, and the cohomology of fields. More recently, Bhatt, Morrow, and Scholze used homotopical methods to compare different cohomology theories for algebraic varieties, thereby resolving open questions in arithmetic geometry. In a similarly arithmetic vein, Galatius and Venkatesh initiated the study of Galois representations with homotopical means, whereas Clausen and Scholze revisited the foundations of analytic topology. These and other recent developments in the interface of arithmetic and topology opened up new lines of attack towards classical open questions, which sparked a wide range of current research activities. This conference intends to survey some of the most spectacular recent advances in the fields, thereby paving the way to new developments and future interactions. Our goal is to foster scientific exchange and collaboration between established researchers, emerging leaders, early career mathematicians, and graduate students.

This will be a split transatlantic conference taking place at the Fields Institute in Canada and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Germany, with videoconferencing connections in place to help collaboration. The concept of the twinned conference was 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. The goal of this twinned conference is to bring together experts on Homotopy Theory and adjacent areas to discuss the forefront of current developments in this highly active field.

We especially welcome applications from members of minority groups.

A conference on Algebraic Topology, in memory of Hans-Joachim Baues

This conference is intended to provide an overview of current research in homotopy theory, which has vastly expanded since its roots in the 19th century from the study of topological spaces by algebraic and combinatorial means to other fields of mathematics, including algebraic geometry, differential topology, and mathematical physics.

Recent developments in Quantum Topology -- Cancelled --

Posted in

We will review the basics of quantum topology such as the colored Jones polynomial of a knot, its standard conjectures relating to asymptotics, arithmeticity and modularity, as well as the recent quantum hyperbolic invariants of Kashaev et al, their state-integrals and their structural properties. The course is aimed to be accessible by graduate students and young researchers.

Open enumerative geometry for Landau-Ginzburg models and Mirror Symmetry

A Landau-Ginzburg (LG) model is a triplet of data $(X,W,G)$ consisting of a regular complex-valued function W from a quasi-projective variety X with a group G acting on X so that W is invariant. An enumerative theory developed by Fan, Jarvis and Ruan gives FJRW invariants, an analogue of Gromov-Witten invariants, for LG models. We define an open enumerative theory for certain LG models, building on the FJRW point of view. Roughly speaking, our theory involves computing specific integrals on certain moduli of discs with boundary and interior marked points.
