Special Geometric Structures in Mathematics and Physics
September 8-12, 2014
This 5-day workshop aims to bring together researchers in various fields of differential geometry with theoretical physicists. Each speaker will give two talks, one of which will be of a more introductory nature, thus making the workshop accessible also for PhD students.
Preliminary list of speakers:
Ilka Agricola (Marburg)
Sergey Cherkis (Arizona)
Marco Gualtieri (Toronto)
Martin Guest (Waseda)
