This is the first announcement for the 18th UK-Japan Winter School in Mathematics: Singularities, Symmetries and Submanifolds. The winter school will take place on 4-7 January 2017 at University College London.
The topic this year is the interface between symplectic topology and geometric analysis, including mirror symmetry and calibrated submanifolds. The winter school provides a forum for both young and established researchers, particularly from the UK and Japan, to meet, exchange ideas and to learn about current developments in an active area of mathematics from leading experts in the field.
There will be three minicourses, a variety of research talks and a poster session for PhD students to present their work. Detailed information and online registration will be available on the website in due course.
The minicourses will be suitable for graduate students and the speakers will be:
- Dominic Joyce (Oxford)
- Ailsa Keating (Columbia/Cambridge)
- Kazushi Ueda (Tokyo)
Research talk speakers will include the following (those marked * are still to be confirmed):
- Costante Bellettini (Cambridge/UCL)*
- Simon Donaldson (Imperial College/Stony Brook)
- Kota Hattori (Keio)
- Hiroshi Iriyeh (Ibaraki)
- Kirill Krasnov (Nottingham)*
- Yanki Lekili (King’s College London)
- Reiko Miyaoka (Tohoku)
