Geometric Representation Theory and Beyond
Date: 26 - 30 September 2016
Location: Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
Event type: CRC Workshop
Organisers: Iain Gordon (Edinburgh), Kobi Kremnitzer (Oxford), Raphael Rouquier (UCLA)
There are powerful new tools and ideas at the forefront of geometric representation theory, particularly categorical incarnations of ideas from mathematical physics, algebraic, arithmetic and symplectic geometry, and topology: perhaps geometry is no longer the future of geometric representation theory. Speakers at this workshop have been invited to present their own vision for the future of the field.
Speakers: David Ben-Zvi (Austin), Alexander Braverman (Toronto and Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics), Laurent Fargues (Jussieu), Dennis Gaitsgory (Harvard), Victor Ginzburg (Chicago), Michael Harris (Columbia), Tamas Hausel (IST Austria), David Nadler (Berkeley), Andrei Okounkov (Columbia), Vera Serganova (Berkeley), Wolfgang Soergel (Freiburg), Catharina Stroppel (Bonn), Constantin Teleman (Oxford), Geordie Williamson (Bonn)
