Organized by: Lara B. Anderson, David Baraglia, Laura P. Schaposnik, and Vivek Shende
Dates: June 13 – 17, 2016
The aim of this workshop is to connect recent developments and open questions in the study of branes in the moduli space of Higgs bundles with other areas of mathematics and theoretical physics: differential and algebraic geometry, compact and non compact Calabi-Yau integrable systems, curve and brane quantization, and string vacuum spaces. In particular, one of the goals of the workshop is to bring to wider attention some of the problems in other parts of mathematics and physics that have arisen recently and which can be tackled from the perspective of Higgs bundles and spectral data.
Application deadline: April 13, 2016. Applicant will be notified soon after this date of their acceptance.
