The conference will take place online, and will include live presentations and discussions as well as recordings and chatrooms, in order to accommodate time zones. Maplesoft staff will also offer Maple training sessions on a variety of topics during the conference. All presenters at the conference are invited to submit a full paper. These submissions undergo peer-review, and the decision about acceptance or rejection lies with the Program Committee. Accepted papers are published in the conference proceedings.
From a community perspective, one aim of the workshop is to bring together mathematicians from adjacent research communities with a shared interest in braids as they arise in symplectic or algebraic geometry. We hope the conference will accelerate the cross-pollination of ideas, and help foster collaborations, at what is a very exciting time for the field. Much of this research also lies at an interface with other aspects of the thematic semester -- for instance, braids in representation theory (e.g. in connection with cluster algebras or Bridgeland stability conditions), or in low-dimensional topology (e.g. in connection with monodromies of open books) -- and many of the talks should be of interest to a broader set of semester participants.
