Organizers: Richard Thomas (Imperial), Dusa McDuff (Barnard), Dieter Salamon (ETH Zürich), Paul Seidel (MIT)
CMI Workshop in partnership with INI
This week-long meeting of the world's experts in symplectic geometry and neighbouring fields will celebrate the 60th birthday of Sir Simon Donaldson FRS and his profound influence on the subject. A characteristic of both his work and this meeting will be the influence of (and on) other fields, such as low dimensional topology, algebraic geometry, geometric analysis and theoretical physics.
Invited speakers: Mina Aganagic (Berkeley), Denis Auroux (Berkeley), Mikhail Gromov (IHES, Paris), Eleny Ionel (Stanford), Peter Kronheimer (Harvard), Tom Mrowka (MIT), Dusa McDuff (Barnard), Peter Ozsváth (Princeton), Zoltán Szabó (Princeton), Paul Seidel (MIT), Ivan Smith (Cambridge), Clifford Taubes (Harvard), Katrin Wehrheim (Berkeley), Edward Witten (IAS, Princeton) tbc
