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.
Speakers: Mina Aganagic (Berkeley), Michael Atiyah (Edinburgh), Denis Auroux (Berkeley), Kenji Fukaya (Stony Brook), Mikhail Gromov (IHES, Paris), Nigel Hitchin (Oxford), Eleny Ionel (Stanford), Frances Kirwan (Oxford), Peter Kronheimer (Harvard), Dusa McDuff (Barnard), Tom Mrowka (MIT), Emmy Murphy (Northwestern), Peter Ozsváth (Princeton), John Pardon (Princeton), Paul Seidel (MIT), Ivan Smith (Cambridge), Song Sun (Stony Brook), Zoltán Szabó (Princeton), Thomas Walpuski (MIT), Katrin Wehrheim (Berkeley)
