TICT2020 — Topics in Category Theory: A Spring School
11 Mar 2020 - 13 Mar 2020 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This Spring School will gather together PhD students and junior researchers who use category-theoretic ideas or techniques in their research. It will provide a forum to learn about important themes in contemporary category theory, both from experts and from each other. Three invited speakers will each present a three-hour mini-course, accessible to non-specialists, introducing an area of active research. There will also be short talks contributed by PhD students and postdocs, and a poster session. The focus of the Spring School is on aspects of pure category theory as they interact with research in other areas of algebra, geometry, topology and logic. Any "categorical thinker" - that is, any mathematician whose work makes use of categorical ideas - is welcome to participate.

New Perspectives on SYZ Mirror Symmetry
20 Mar 2020 - 01 Apr 2020 • London, United Kingdom
Organizer:
https://sites.google.com/view/imperial-syz
Abstract:
The workshop provides an international forum for recent advances in mirror symmetry, with an emphasis on the celebrated SYZ conjecture. Various approaches to this conjecture, based on algebraic, symplectic and non-archimedean geometry, will be presented. Along with more focused research-oriented talks, there will be special talks aimed at establishing links among different points of view .

Geometry, Combinatorics, and Markov Numbers
11 May 2020 - 13 May 2020 • Liverpool, United Kingdom
Organizer:
University of Liverpool, Department of Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
The main topics of this meeting are the geometries of Markov's theorem. Among such geometries are hyperbolic geometry and the geometry of numbers. Minkowski-Voronoi polyhedra, Klein sails, etc. We are planning to discuss new advances and currently open problems in order to establish interrelations between different theories of multidimensional continued fractions

Hanna Neumann Day
12 Jun 2020 • Hull, United Kingdom
Organizer:
University of Hull, Department of Mathematics
Abstract:
We are pleased to announce a one day conference dedicated to Hanna Neumann (1914 – 1971). It will be held at University of Hull, 12 June 2020.

Hanna Neumann was an outstanding mathematician whose research has significantly influenced the development of modern group theory. Her key achievements were in combinatorial group theory, and her book ‘Varieties of Groups’ (Springer 1967) is now a recognised classic. Hanna’s academic career was closely tied to the University of Hull, where she worked from 1946 until 1958. The conference includes lectures and a number of public events. Further details will be posted on the conference webpage.

Manifolds and K-theory: the legacy of Andrew Ranicki
29 Jun 2020 - 03 Jul 2020 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
International Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Edinburgh; UK
Abstract:
Andrew Ranicki and his theory of algebraic surgery played a central role in linking manifold theory, algebraic K-theory, and its close cousin L-theory. These areas have seen great developments and advances in the last decade from distinct research communities. This workshop will bring together mathematicians working on the topology of high-dimensional manifolds and their automorphisms with those working on the algebraic K-theory (and its cousins hermitian K-theory and L-theory) of rings and ring spectra, in order to share recent progress in these areas and kindle a fresh interaction between them.

Metric Geometry and Geometric Analysis
06 Jul 2020 - 17 Jul 2020 • University of Oxford, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The purpose of the summer school is to introduce graduate students to key mainstream directions in the recent development of geometry, which sprang from Riemannian Geometry in an attempt to use its methods in various contexts of non-smooth geometry. This concerns recent developments in metric generalizations of the theory of nonpositively curved spaces and discretizations of methods in geometry, geometric measure theory and global analysis. The metric geometry perspective gave rise to new results and problems in Riemannian Geometry as well.
