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.
