The upcoming conference, “Flexibility and contact geometry” now has its own dedicated webpage where you can find the finalised list of speakers and the outline of the schedule. It also contains information on how to register. Whilst registration is free, it is essential so that we know how large an audience to prepare for. Lunch will be provided free of charge to all registered attendees.
The 2016 IMJ-PRG Summer School on the topic of “Symplectic topology, Sheaves and Mirror Symmetry” will take place at the Jussieu campus of the Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu, Paris Rive Gauche (IMJ-PRG) in Paris, from June 27 to July 8, 2016. The announcement from the conference organisers is below. [Read more…]
There has been a preliminary announcement for the 8th Workshop on Symplectic Field Theory, which will take place at Humboldt University in Berlin during the week of August 8-12, 2016 (plus a precourse for PhD students and other non-experts on the preceding weekend). The focus of the workshop will be on Symplectic Homology, including lecture series by Tobias Ekholm, Mark McLean, and Alex Oancea, and additional speakers to be confirmed. [Read more…]
On December 14-16 there will be a conference held here at the ULB dedicated to contact and symplectic geometry, and in particular developments around the recent work of Eliashberg-Murphy-Strom on flexibility and contact structures in all dimensions. [Read more…]
