Connections Workshop: Floer Homotopy Theory

at.algebraic-topology gt.geometric-topology
2022-09-08 through 2022-09-09
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute
Berkeley, CA; USA

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Kristen Hendricks, Teena Gerhardt, Ailsa Keating

Description

The two-day conference Connections Workshop: Floer Homotopy Theory will run September 8th and 9th at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI). This workshop will feature talks by experts in Floer theory (and its applications to low-dimensional topology) and homotopy theory. It will include two expository lectures aimed at graduate students and other researchers who are new to the field, as well as a five research talks, given by the following speakers.

Expository Talks

  • Jennifer Hom, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Mona Merling, University of Pennsylvania

Research Talks

  • Po Hu, Wayne State University
  • Xin Jin, Boston College
  • Inbar Klang, Columbia University
  • Shira Tanny, Institute for Advanced Study
  • Melissa Zhang, University of Georgia

There will also be a contributed talks session and a panel discussion focusing on professional development. This workshop will highlight contributions by women and gender minorities, and members of these groups and of other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to attend. This workshop is open to all mathematicians. The deadline for applying for funding is June 1; contributed talks will be solicited shortly thereafter.

This workshop precedes the weeklong Introductory Workshop: Floer Homotopy Theory, which may also be of interest to participants.

Floer Homotopy Theory MSRI Introductory Workshop

at.algebraic-topology gt.geometric-topology sg.symplectic-geometry
2022-09-12 through 2022-09-16
MSRI
Berkeley, CA; USA

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Sheel Ganatra, Tyler Lawson, Robert Lipshitz, Nathalie Wahl

Description

Over the last decade, there has been a wealth of new applications of homotopy-theoretic techniques to Floer homology in low-dimensional topology and symplectic geometry, including Manolescu’s disproof of the high-dimensional Triangulation Conjecture and Abouzaid-Blumberg’s proof of the Arnol’d Conjecture in finite characteristic. Conversely, results in Floer theory and categorification have opened new directions of research in homotopy theory, from string topology to S-Lie algebras. The goal of this workshop is to introduce researchers in Floer theory to modern techniques and questions in homotopy theory and, conversely, introduce researchers in homotopy theory to ideas underlying Floer theory and its applications.

IMANewLecturers2022

Through a community initiative supported by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences and the Heads of Departments of Mathematics Sciences (HoDoMS) and endorsed by the Royal Statistical Society and the London Mathematical Society, we are delighted to announce that in September 2022 the two‐day Induction Course for lecturers new to teaching mathematics and statistics within Higher Education will once again take place. Whilst arrangements may still be subject to change due to the ongoing Covid‐19 situation and any future Government guidance, we are currently preparing for the Induction Course to be delivered as an in‐person only activity to maximise the opportunities for informal networking and discussion that have long formed a highly‐valued part of this meeting.

The Induction Course for New Lecturers in the Mathematical Sciences has been designed by the mathematics community so that it is ideally suited for anyone who is new to or has limited experience teaching mathematics or statistics within UK higher education. It will be delivered by individuals with significant experience of teaching in the mathematical sciences and will focus upon the specific details and issues that arise in mathematics and statistics teaching and learning within higher education including topics such as:

• Lecturing. • Supporting student learning. • Making teaching interactive. • Assessment, examinations and feedback. • Linking teaching & research. • Using technology to enhance teaching and learning. • Using examples and mathematical problem solving. • Teaching statistics and its applications.

Additionally, there will be significant opportunities for delegates to discuss their own ideas, challenges and experiences with the session facilitators so that individual queries can be answered.

In the past, attendance has been recognised as contributing towards some introductory institutional programmes in learning and teaching for new staff, and for the 2022 Induction Course accreditation will be provided through the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications relative to the UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education.

Timing The Induction Course takes place at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the University of Cambridge and commences mid‐morning on the 14 September, and ends late‐afternoon on the 15 September. Accommodation will be offered at the University of Cambridge on the evening of the 14 September for any delegates who attend in person, although any in‐person attendance will be dependent upon the Covid‐19 situation at the time. As such, we reserve the right to make necessary changes to arrangements in response to Government legislation and guidance.

Session Facilitators Those leading the sessions at the Induction Course are all experienced teachers of mathematics within UK higher education. They include:

• Lara Alcock (Loughborough University) • Michael Grove (University of Birmingham) • Rachel Hilliam (Open University) • Kevin Houston (University of Leeds) • Joseph Kyle (University of Birmingham) • Steve Otto (The R&A) • Chris Sangwin (The University of Edinburgh) • Louise Walker (The University of Manchester) • John Mason (Open University) • Ulrike Tillmann (Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences)

Induction Course Costs Following generous financial support from the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and the Heads of Departments of Mathematical Sciences, we are able to offer the Induction Course at the following subsidised rates:

Full residential delegate rate* (Both days including all lunches, refreshments, Course dinner and accommodation on 18 September) £299

Two‐day delegate rate (Both days including all lunches, refreshments, Course dinner but no accommodation) £240 Day delegate rate (including lunch and refreshments) £95 Induction Course dinner (as a separate purchase) £56 * Please note that accommodation is allocated on a first‐come‐first served basis.

2022-09-19 through 2022-09-20
Institute of Mathematics and its Applications

Meeting Type: conference - hybrid

Contact: Pamela Bye

Description

The 4th IMA Conference on The Mathematical Challenges of Big Data is issuing a Call for Papers for both contributed talks and posters. Mathematical foundations of data science and its ongoing challenges are rapidly growing fields, encompassing areas such as: network science, machine learning, modelling, information theory, deep and reinforcement learning, applied probability and random matrix theory. Applying deeper mathematics to data is changing the way we understand the environment, health, technology, quantitative humanities, the natural sciences, and beyond ‐ with increasing roles in society and industry. This conference brings together researchers and practitioners to highlight key developments in the state‐of‐the art and find common ground where theory and practice meet, to shape future directions and maximize impact. We particularly welcome talks aimed to inform on recent developments in theory or methodology that may have applied consequences, as well as reports of diverse applications that have led to interesting successes or uncovered new challenges.

Confirmed Invited Speakers Dr Heather Battey, Imperial College London; Prof. Nando de Freitas, Google Deep Mind; Prof. Lenka Zdebrova, EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute Technology);
Prof. Tiago de Paula Peixoto, Central European University;
