Welcome to MathMeetings.net! This is a list for research mathematics conferences, workshops, summer schools, etc.

There are a few other conference lists available, but this list aims to be more complete by allowing anyone at all to add announcements. Rather than use a wiki, announcement information is stored in database format so that useful search functions can be added as the list grows.

This site began as AlgTop-Conf, for meetings in algebraic topology. It is now expanded to serve other mathematics subjects. Use tag filtering to focus on announcements related to your discipline (see right or below).

To facilitate interactions between people of different backgrounds, the conference will be enriched by two mini-courses, one more oriented towards algebraic topology and the other towards representation theory.

Stable homotopy theory and p-adic Hodge theory

ag.algebraic-geometry at.algebraic-topology kt.k-theory-and-homology nt.number-theory
2017-06-26 through 2017-06-30
University of Copenhagen, Department of Mathematics
Copenhagen; Denmark

Meeting Type: Masterclass

Contact: Ryo Horiuchi, Martin Speirs, Lars Hesselholt


Stable Homotopy theory and arithmetic geometry are two very active areas of research today. Our speakers, Thomas Nikolaus and Matthew Morrow represent two researchers at the forefront of these areas, working in different but overlapping fields. The overall motivation for this masterclass is to study the relations between these two areas of research.

In recent years stable homotopy theory has seen unexpected applications to arithmetic geometry. In particular the work of Matthew Morrow (in collaboration with Bhargav Bhatt and Peter Scholze) on integral p-adic Hodge theory was, in part, motivated by calculations of topological Hochschild homology for certain arithmetically important rings. Very recently Lars Hesselholt has used the cyclotomic structure on topological Hochschild homology to define a topological version of periodic cyclic homology and used it to give cohomological interpretations of zeta functions for schemes over finite fields. This was in part motivated by new perspectives and results on cyclotomic structures afforded by work of Thomas Nikolaus (in collaboration with Peter Scholze).

The goal of this masterclass is to study this recent progress. In particular we will focus on the work by Nikolaus and Scholze on cyclotomic spectra and the work by Bhatt, Morrow and Scholze giving integral relations between p-adic cohomology theories. The masterclass will consist of two lecture series by Matthew Morrow and Thomas Nikolaus as well as several discussion sessions.

July 2017

Persistent Homology Summer School

ac.commutative-algebra ag.algebraic-geometry at.algebraic-topology
2017-07-03 through 2017-07-07
Fac. Sc and CRMEF Rabat
Rabat; Morocco

Meeting Type: Summer School

Contact: My Ismail Mamouni


The Persistent Homology is a recent and immersive research areas. It is a homology theory adapted in an algorithmic context to the topological data analysis. It keeps track of the homology classes that still remain "persistent" when approaching a topological space by a cloud of points. The persistent homology finds applications in all research areas that involve big datas, including medicine, chemistry, music, linguistics, sports, economics, social sciences, ....

        The course is intended to PhD  students who have already started research in Persistent homology, it can also  inspire  students at the end of their master to start their research in this area and finally it can interest senior and junior researchers for a re-conversion in another field of research

      We plan to schedule 16 hours of courses, 6 hours of open discussion, 3 hours of Lab sessions, and 3 hours of research contributed talks.

Expert Participants. Dan Freed (principle lecturer) Agnes Beaudry Robert Bryant Sam Gunningham Max Metlitski David Morrison Andy Neitzke

Abstract. This event will be framed around a series of 10 somewhat self-contained lectures by Dan Freed concerning recent work using stable homotopy theory for predictive results in topological phases of matter. Other key experts will facilitate supplemental discussion sessions with the intent of offering background, context, and examples. The expertise of these participants will represent differential geometry, quantum field theory, and algebraic topology.
This event will be especially designed for graduate students and recent graduates, as well as experienced researchers aiming to enhance their pool of workable knowledge.

Registration. Please register through the event webpage: http://www.math.montana.edu/cbms/ . Deadline for registration is 19 March 2017; there is no registration fee.

There are NSF funds to fully support 30 participants, notably graduate students and recent graduates; these funds will cover food, board, and travel (within the United States). Application for such funding is part of the registration process.

Location. Bozeman, Montana, is an especially splendid place to be through this period of the summer. There are a host of trails near to town, and there is a modest, though active, downtown district.

For any further inquiries please send an email to Ryan Grady: ryan.grady1 at montana.edu .

Locally Symmetric Spaces: Analytical and Topological Aspects

2017-09-01 through 2018-04-30
Institute for Advanced Study

Meeting Type: long-term research program

Contact: see conference website


During the 2017-18 academic year, the School will have a special program on Locally Symmetric Spaces: Analytical and Topological Aspects. Akshay Venkatesh of Stanford University will be the Distinguished Visiting Professor.

The topology of locally symmetric spaces interacts richly with number theory via the theory of automorphic forms (Langlands program). Many new phenomena seem to appear in the non-Hermitian case (e.g., torsion cohomology classes, relations with mixed motives and algebraic K-theory, derived nature of deformation rings). One focus of the program will be to try to better understand some of these phenomena.

Much of our understanding of this topology comes through analysis ("Hodge theory"). Indeed harmonic analysis on locally symmetric spaces plays a foundational role in the theory of automorphic forms and is of increasing importance in analytic number theory. A great success of such harmonic analysis is the Arthur-Selberg trace formula; on the other hand, the analytic aspects of the trace formula are not fully developed, and variants such as the relative trace formula are not as well understood. Thus analysis on such spaces, interpreted broadly, will be another focus of the program.

Meeting Type: research program

Contact: see conference website


Derived algebraic geometry is an extension of algebraic geometry that provides a convenient framework for directly treating non-generic geometric situations (such as non-transverse intersections in intersection theory), in lieu of the more traditional perturbative approaches (such as the “moving” lemma). This direct approach, in addition to being conceptually satisfying, has the distinct advantage of preserving the symmetries of the situation, which makes it much more applicable. In particular, in recent years, such techniques have found applications in diverse areas of mathematics, ranging from arithmetic geometry, mathematical physics, geometric representation theory, and homotopy theory. This semester long program will be dedicated to exploring these directions further, and finding new connections.
