The program will start with an introductory summer school and center
around four workshops on the following topics:
Modular forms around string theory
Enumerative geometry and CalabiYau varieties
Physics around Mirror Symmetry
Hodge theory in String Theory
Each workshop will be preceded by one week of introductory lectures;
during the remaining time we will run seminars, colloquia and other
activities. We anticipate that Workshop 2 and 3 will be held back-to-back
as joint activities with the Perimeter Institute. Workshop 4 is
organized jointly with PIMS CRG Program Geometry and Physics.
July 2 to August 30, 2013
Introductory summer school on Calabi-Yau varieties; Arithmetic,
Geometry and Physics
From July 2 to August 30, study sessions, study seminars, informal
lectures, research seminars, and working seminars will be organized
spontaneously, by students, Fields postdoctoral fellows and members
for the program.
26-30, 2013, there will be an Introductory
Workshop on Calabi-Yau Varieties
(Bahen Building, Room
1180) which will prepare graduate students, postdoctoral fellows
and general members to a level where they can participate fully
in the program activities. The workshop speakers include Charles
Doran (Alberta), Mark Gross (San Diego), Klaus Hulek (Hannover),
Radu Laza (Stony Brook), Bernd Siebert (Hamburg), Johannes Walcher
(McGill), and Noriko Yui (Queen's) among others. Details of the
summer school will be posted on the thematic program webpage as
they become available.
Anyone who is interested in attending the summer school should
register online. Limited funding for local accommodation is available.
For travel expenses, participants are urged to seek funding from
their home institutions/countries.
The program will center around four week-long workshops as focal
points of the thematic organization.
September 16-20, 2013
Workshop 1 Modular forms around string theory
Principal Organizers: Charles F. Doran,
Matthias Schütt and NorikoYui
Workshops 2 & 3 will be organized jointly
with the Perimeter Institute. In order to ease participation
in both workshops, they will be held back-to-back, one at the
Fields Institute and the other at the Perimeter Institute.
Workshop 2 Enumerative geometry and CalabiYau varieties
Topics : Algebraic geometry, Symplectic geometry, Tropical geometry.
Principal Organizers: Mark Gross, Radu Laza, Jaume Gomis, Shing-Tung
October 21-25, 2013 to
be held at the Perimeter Institute
Workshop 3 Physics around Mirror Symmetry
Principal Organizers: Vincent Bouchard, Jaume Gomis, Sergei
Gukov, Johannes Walcher, Shing-Tung Yau.
November 18-22, 2013
Workshop 4 Hodge Theory in String Theory
(a joint workshop with PIMS CRG Program Geometry and Physics)
Principal Organizers: Charles F. Doran, Stefan Müller-Stach,
Radu Laza, Johannes Walcher.
Each workshop will be preceeded by a 1-2 week graduate course
comprising 10-15 lectures by the principal organizers and workshop
attendees. While the courses can be attended just by themselves,
they are meant at the same time as a preparation for the upcoming
Seminars and colloquia
In-between workshops we will run several regular seminars and
colloquia. There will be a weekly research seminar aimed at members
and postdoctoral fellows. It will be accompanied by study seminars
(mainly for postdocs and students) and mini-symposia as the need
arises. Colloquia will be organized on a roughly biweekly schedule
with the possible exception of workshops.
