This conference brings some of the top experts in this field to discuss recent advances. The conference consists of:
A workshop, February 6-10, with three lecture series on different aspects of categorification
The main conference, February 13-17.
Although the ideas behind such relations appeared already in the late 90s, the recent years have seen some dramatic new developments. The goal of this learning workshop is to bring together physicists and mathematicians who are experts in the subject and also those who would like to enter the field. In particular, the talks will be given both by senior scientists and junior ones, including PhD students who only recently began working on the subject. The talks will be supplemented by dedicated discussion sessions where experts can answer questions that will be submitted by participants to the moderator in advance, or asked directly during the session.
One aim of this workshop is to expose young researchers to these breakthroughs providing them with the necessary background from dynamics, and geometry to allow them to appreciate some of these recent advances, and prepare them to make new original contributions. For this purpose, we will have minicourses on ”Arithmeticity, Superrigidity and totally geodesic manifolds”, and ”Rigidity and geodesic planes in infinite volume hyperbolic manifolds”. These courses will be preceded by an introductory minicourse on Hyperbolic geometry. We will also have a minicourse on ”Understanding of geodesic planes in hyperbolic 3-manifolds via computations and visualization”. In addition, we wish to bring together experts in these fields to discuss the recent developments and open problems that lie at the crossroads of these different fields and to encourage more interaction among people working in these diverse areas.
Introductory courses: June 19-20, 2023; Conference: June 21-23, 2023
All areas of Topology and its Applications are included:
General Topology, Set-Theoretic Topology,
Geometric Topology, Algebraic Topology, Applied Topology.
Topological Groups, Dimension Theory, Dynamical Systems and
Continua Theory, Computational Topology, History of Topology.
The conference will bring together homotopy theory, cohomology of groups, algebraic K-theory and number theory, the main areas in which Vic worked. The aim is to feature important developments, paying special attention to synergies between these areas, as Vic did in much of his versatile research.
Young postdoctoral researchers and graduate students are very welcome to attend the workshop and to contribute with a junior talk.
