Workshop on Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics
18 Nov 2019 - 22 Nov 2019 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
With an eye towards the use and need for higher structures, this workshop will bring together experts in algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry, and theoretical physics to focus on common areas interacting with HMS. Potential topics are Bershadsky--Cecotti--Ooguri--Vafa theory, shifted symplectic structures, higher Donaldson-Thomas invariants, and symplectic duality, in relation to HMS.

Winter Graduate School in Toric Topology
13 Jan 2020 - 17 Jan 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
Two intensive mini-courses will be given over one week by experts on polyhedral products and toric topology. These are designed to give graduate students and early career researchers in nearby fields a better understanding of each subject by presenting multiple viewpoints from different lecturers, thus enabling the participants to better engage in the subsequent workshops and seminars.

Workshop on Torus Actions in Topology
23 Mar 2020 - 27 Mar 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The workshop will introduce and explore new themes of research in toric topology. It will provide an opportunity for interaction between people who work on different aspects of torus actions, such as topological, combinatorial, symplectic and algebro-geometric.

Spring Graduate School on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
20 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
Two mini-courses will be given by experts in Geometric Group Theory. These are designed to give graduate students and early career researchers a research level perspective on how and why Polyhedral Products appear in Geometric Group Theory, thereby enabling the participants to engage fully in the workshop that immediately follows.

Workshop on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
25 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
Two special cases of the polyhedral product construction have been immensely influential in geometric group theory, giving rise to at least three major families of examples of groups parametrized by flag simplicial complexes: right-angled Coxeter groups associated with the polyhedral product for pairs (,*); right-angled Artin groups associated with the polyhedral product for pairs (,*); and Bestvina-Brady groups associated with a covering space of the polyhedral product for pairs (,*). However, the interaction between toric topology and geometric group theory is largely unexplored. The purpose of this workshop is to significantly increase synergies between the two groups and establish a framework for approaching common problems and methods in a more global context.

Interactions of gauge theory with contact and symplectic topology in dimensions 3 and 4
07 Jun 2020 - 12 Jun 2020 • Banff, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station
Abstract:
The Banff International Research Station will host the "Interactions of gauge theory with contact and symplectic topology in dimensions 3 and 4" workshop in Banff from June 7 to June 12, 2020. This workshop will highlight new results in low-dimensional topology coming from a wide range of geometric methods. Low-dimensional topology studies the global properties of geometric spaces in dimensions 3 and 4, such as 3-dimensional space and 4-dimensional space-time.
