The conference will bring researchers across both the fields of mathematics and physics together in order to discuss recently developed topics, on-going work and speculative new ideas within supergeometry and its applications in physics. This event offers a unique opportunity to unite physicists and mathematicians who share a common interest in supermathematics. There will be enough time available for discussions between the participants; a poster session for junior researchers will be organized. The main topics include:

  • Supermanifolds and their generalizations (e.g., superschemes, color supermanifolds, noncommutative supergeometry...)
  • Super Lie groups and Lie superalgebras
  • Supergeometric methods in physics
  • Geometric aspects of supersymmetric field theories, superstrings, and supergravity
  • Mathematical aspects of the BV-BRST formalism
