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

## 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.

## Twinned Conference on Homotopy Theory with Applications to Arithmetic and Geometry

## 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 lead 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.

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

### Live Streaming information

The talks are available in the live stream here and here

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.

## Conference on "Higher Homotopy Algebras in Topology", May 9 - 10, 2019

**Conference on "Higher Homotopy Algebras in Topology", May 9 - 10, 2019**

Algebras up to homotopy, or homotopy algebras, such as $A_\infty$, $C_\infty$, $E_\infty$ and $L_\infty$, play an increasingly important role in many areas of mathematics and physics, like topology, mathematical physics, and deformation theory. Let us mention a few examples of interest. Homotopy Lie algebras, also known as $L_\infty$-algebras, have been essential in Kontsevich's proof of deformation quantization. In algebraic topology, $C_\infty$ and $L_\infty$-algebras arise as structures governing the rational homotopy type of spaces, and $E_\infty$-(co)algebras naturally appear as an algebraic structure on infinite loop spaces and on the singular (co)chains of any space. Recent advances in this line include the use of higher homotopy algebras to model all sorts of interesting spaces, such as mapping spaces, sections of fiber bundles, configuration spaces, among many others.

This mini-conference focuses on the most recent developments and applications of homotopy algebras in topology.

## Conference on "Integrability, Geometry and Moduli", July 29 - August 2, 2019

## Conference on "Integrability, Geometry and Moduli" July 29 - August 2, 2019

This is a conference in honor of Motohico Mulase's 65th birthday. It will cover recent advances around the following themes

- Quantization of moduli spaces, in particular the Hitchin moduli space of Higgs bundles
- Gromov-Witten theory, Frobenius manifolds, integrable hierarchies, cohomological field theories
- Geometry of quiver varieties, wall-crossing phenomena
- Mirror symmetry, topological string theory, quantum invariants of 3-manifolds
- Topological recursion, quantum curves, and application to geometry and enumerative problems (Hurwitz theory, random matrix theory, ribbon graphs)

Connections between these fields are apparent from the physics perspective and research is trying to make rigorous sense of these relationships. Encouraging the exchanges between mathematicians and theoretical physicists will thus be an important dimension of the conference. More details available soon.
