Workshop on Homological Mirror Symmetry: Emerging Developments and Applications

The spring workshop will emphasize the interactions between homological mirror symmetry and recent developments in other areas of mathematics and physics.


The workshop is organized by Paul Seidel (MIT) and James Pascaleff (Univ Illinois)


Denis Auroux, Tobias Dyckerhoff, Xin Jin, Ludmil Katzarkov, Si Li, Tony Pantev, Dhruv Ranganathan, Mauricio Romo, Bernd Siebert, Jake Solomon, Nicolas Templier, Lauren Williams, Ed Witten, Tony Yue Yu


The school has a limited amount of funds available to help support graduate students, postdocs and junior mathematicians who may wish to attend the workshop at the Institute. Please send your CV, research statement and a letter from a mathematician who knows your work to Michelle Huguenin at The deadline for submission is January 31, 2017.

Registration for the meals and workshop are required. (Speakers do not need to register)

Although there is no registration fee, because seating is limited both in the seminar room and in our dining hall, you are required to register if you wish to attend all or part of the workshop. In addition, in order for our chef to prepare enough food, we need to have a headcount for the meals. Please note the workshop attendees are expected to pay for their lunch.
