Derived Algebraic Geometry
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Derived algebraic geometry is an extension of algebraic geometry that provides a convenient framework for directly treating non-generic geometric situations (such as non-transverse intersections in intersection theory), in lieu of the more traditional perturbative approaches (such as the "moving" lemma). This direct approach, in addition to being conceptually satisfying, has the distinct advantage of preserving the symmetries of the situation, which makes it much more applicable. In particular, in recent years, such techniques have found applications in diverse areas of mathematics, ranging from arithmetic geometry, mathematical physics, geometric representation theory, and homotopy theory. This semester long program will be dedicated to exploring these directions further, and finding new connections.

Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces
22 Jan 2019 - 24 May 2019 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces are two important areas of Algebraic Geometry that have recently witnessed a flurry of activity and substantial progress on many fundamental open questions. In this program we aim to bring together key researchers in these and related areas to highlight the recent exciting progress and to explore future avenues of research. This program will focus on the following themes: Geometry and Derived Categories, Birational Algebraic Geometry, Moduli Spaces of Stable Varieties, Geometry in Characteristic p>0, and Applications of Algebraic Geometry: Elliptic Fibrations of Calabi-Yau Varieties in Geometry, Arithmetic and the Physics of String Theory.

Geometry and Learning from Data in 3D and Beyond
11 Mar 2019 - 14 Jun 2019 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Fast acquisition and routine use of 3D data due to the advance of modern technology and computer power makes 3D description of the real world imminent and practical in many applications such as 3D modeling, GL2019 Imagevirtual reality, 3D camera, 3D printing and prototyping, etc. It is increasingly important and urgent for efficient processing, analysis, and intelligent use of a large variety of 3D data. The goals of this program are to (1) further advance mathematical and computational techniques for 3D modeling and shape analysis, (2) design effective problem specific approaches combining geometry and machine learning, i.e., learning geometry from geometry, (3) generalize our understandings and techniques for shape analysis to geometric data analysis in higher dimensions.

NSF-CBMS Regional Conference on Topological Methods in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
13 May 2019 - 17 May 2019 • College of Charleston, Charleston, United States
The conference will feature Professor Gunnar Carlsson of Stanford University and Ayasdi Inc. as the Principal Lecturer. Professor Carlsson will deliver a series of ten lectures introducing participants to the fast-emerging field of Topological Data Analysis, which employs many of the techniques commonly used in topology, the study of shape, to analyze massive and complex data sets across multiple application domains. The conference will benefit a broad group of participants as data science is rapidly establishing itself as an interdisciplinary discipline with many high-impact applications. Main targets of the lecture series and the ensuing monograph will be applications to the medical sciences, including, e.g., better targeting and prediction of diseases and improved patient care, though the lectures will benefit a far larger constituency. The great majority of the NSF-supported participants will be recruited from early career researchers, graduate students, minorities, and women.

Fifth Annual Graduate Student Conference in Algebra, Geometry, and Topology
01 Jun 2019 - 02 Jun 2019 • Temple University, Philadelphia, United States
The fifth meeting of the Temple University Graduate Student Conference in Algebra, Geometry, & Topology will take place in Philadelphia, PA from June 1-2, 2019. Past conferences have had over 100 graduate students in attendance. Our goal is to expose graduate students to cutting edge research highlighting the beautiful and fruitful interactions between algebra, geometry, and topology. Additionally, this conference provides a forum for more senior students in these areas to both present their work and form research connections both within and across fields.

Week 3 MRC summer conference: Explicit Methods in Arithmetic Geometry in Characteristic p
16 Jun 2019 - 22 Jun 2019 • Rhode Island, United States
The MRC summer conferences are the centerpiece of the AMS Mathematics Research Communities program, which provides early-career mathematicians and other mathematical scientists (2 years pre-PhD to five years post-PhD) opportunities for collaborative research with leaders and peers in their area and professional development and networking in the wider community of researchers. This conference is the third of three in 2019. From the organizers: "The focus of this MRC will be on problems in arithmetic geometry over fields of positive characteristic p that are amenable to an explicit approach, including the construction of examples, as well as computational exploration. ... To reflect the inherent interdisciplinary nature of arithmetic geometry, we invite early-career mathematicians with a wide range of backgrounds in number theory, algebraic geometry, and other subjects that intersect these fruitfully, such as dynamics and commutative algebra."

The [bagel19] program is divided into two events. The first is a week-long summer school for graduate students and early career researchers that emphasizes both the topological study of knots and their applications to other disciplines. This is immediately followed by a workshop that builds on the topics covered in the prior week and features speakers from a broad set of disciplines with connection to knot theory.

Topological Quantum Matter: From Fantasy to Reality
30 Sep 2019 - 03 Oct 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
While the role of topology in the modern condensed matter physics is difficult to overstate, and despite numerous experimental corroborations of theoretically predicted symmetry-protected topological phases (such as topological insulators), most of these advances can be formulated in the language of non-interacting particles. Real-world realizations of interacting topological phases are, meanwhile, very sparse, with the fractional quantum Hall effect being a notable counterexample. Similarly, the question of stability of topological phases at finite temperatures – a prerequisite for their experimental realizations – is poorly explored. This conference will address these and related questions

Geometry from the Quantum
13 Jan 2020 - 17 Jan 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
A complete understanding of quantum gravity, as it pertains to our universe, remains one of the biggest challenges in theoretical physics. As our observational constraints on the early universe and black hole physics improve, this theoretical challenge has become even more urgent. This conference aims to explore the latest developments in quantum gravity and string theory, ranging from ideas motivated from holographic dualities to new results developing the landscape of string theory vacua.
structure of the landscape of string theory solutions; emergence of spacetime from other degrees of freedom; quantum information aspects of quantum gravity; recent developments in AdS/CFT; QFT methods applied to gravitational problems, such as the analytic conformal bootstrap and UV deformations of QFT; perturbative amplitudes in gravity and string theory
