Organized by: Anton Alexeev and Samson Shatashvili

The proposed program will touch upon two topics in Mathematics: Poisson geometry of moduli spaces and the theory of associators, and some of the mathematical aspects of quantum field theory. Both the moduli space theory and the associator theory are intimately related to quantum field theory. In particular, the associator theory describes the choices of deformation quantization which are given by the Feynamn graphical calculus (pioneered by Kontsevich). Another interaction point with quantum field theory is appearance of multiple zeta-values in the theory of sting amplitudes. The workshop will provide a platform for interaction of researchers working in several fields of Mathematics and Mathematical Physics working on different facets of this fascinating theme.

Program Application Deadline: January 30, 2018 (or when event is at maximum capacity). Applicants will be contacted soon after this date.
