SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES
|April 19, 2014|
To be informed of when the registration and travel support application opens please subscribe to the Fields maillist.
The program will start with an introductory summer school and center
around four workshops on the following topics:
July 2 to August 30, 2013
Concentrated Graduate Course preceeding the Workshop 1 on Modular Forms around String Theory
|September 16-20, 2013|
on Modular forms around string theory
Principal Organizers: Charles F. Doran, Matthias Schütt and NorikoYui
Concentrated Graduate Course preceeding the Workshop 2 on Enumerative geometry and CalabiYau varieties
|October 15-19, 2013|
on Enumerative geometry and CalabiYau varieties
Principal Organizers: Mark Gross, Radu Laza, Jaume Gomis, Shing-Tung Yau.
Topics : Algebraic geometry, Symplectic geometry, Tropical geometry.
Note: 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.
Concentrated Graduate Course on Hodge Theory in String Theory
|November 18-22, 2013|
on Hodge Theory in String Theory
a joint workshop with PIMS CRG Program Geometry and Physics
Principal Organizers: Charles F. Doran, David Morrison, Radu Laza, Johannes Walcher.
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.
