Workshop on Sheaf-Theoretic Methods in Symplectic Topology

Monday, May 9, 2011 (All day) to Thursday, May 12, 2011 (All day)
2010-2011

Sheaf-theoretic methods have recently entered symplectic geometry.  By bringing researchers with different backgrounds together, we plan to explore the interaction of sheaf-theoretic methods and holomorphic curves theory.

 

Organizers:

Helmut Hofer, IAS and Claude Viterbo, Ecole Polytechnique/Columbia University

 

Speakers:

Mohammed Abouzaid, MIT, Denis Auroux, UC Berkeley, Stephane Guillermou, Institut Fourier, Grenoble, France,

Bohan Fang, Columbia, Melissa Liu, Columbia, David Nadler, Northwestern, Dimitry Tamarkin, Northwestern, Chris Woodward, Rutgers.

 

Registration

Registration for the meals and workshop is required.  (Speakers do not need to register.)

 

Although there is no registration fee, because seating is limited both in the seminar room and in our dining hall, you are required to register if you wish to attend all or part of the workhop.  In addition, in order for our chef to prepare enough food, we need to have a headcount for the meals.  Please note the workshop attendees are expected to pay for their lunch.  Approximate range of prices is $4.00 for a salad to $9.00 for an entree.  Vegetarian lunches will be available.  Only cash is accepted at the cash registers.  Credit cards and personal checks are not accepted.
