The aim of this workshop is to present the most recent advances in low-dimensional topology, with a special focus on two areas: The first is the study of surfaces in 4-manifolds, including knot concordance, using techniques from gauge theory, Floer homology, and Khovanov homology. The second is the conjecture relating L-spaces (3-manifolds with the simplest possible Floer homology groups including lens spaces), left-orderability of the fundamental group, and taut foliations on 3-manifolds.
Invited speakers: Nathan Dowlin (Dartmouth), John Etnyre (Gatech), Marco Golla (Nantes), Cameron Gordon (Austin), Peter Kronheimer (Harvard), Francesco Lin (Princeton), Charles Livingston (Indiana), Andrew Lobb (Durham), Maggie Miller (Princeton), Tomasz Mrowka (MIT), András Némethi (Renyi), Peter Ozsváth (Princeton), Lisa Piccirillo (Austin), Jacob Rasmussen (Cambridge), Sarah Rasmussen (Cambridge), Arunima Ray (MPIM Bonn), Daniel Ruberman (Brandeis), András Stipsicz (Renyi), Zoltán Szabó (Princeton), Ian Zemke (Princeton)
