Geometrical Aspects of Supersymmetry: October 22 – 26, 2018

Apply to a Workshop Now

Organized by Manuela Kulaxizi and Maxim Zabzine

Subject of the workshop:

Supersymmetry and geometry are tied together in many remarkable ways. Over last 40 years these two fields have influenced each other enormously. Many new interesting geometrical constructions were motivated by the supersymmetry considerations, e.g. the hyperKahler quotiens, generalized Kahler geometry, generalized geometry, T-duality and many other topics. The workshop “Geometrical Aspects of Supersymmetry” will be devoted to these exciting interaction between supersymmetry and geometry.

Professor Martin Roček at Stony Brook had a huge impact on the development of the interrelations between geometry and supersymmetry; several of the foundational works in the subject were co-authored by Martin Roček who turned 60 a few years ago. This workshop will celebrate Martin’s distinguished contributions to supersymmetry and geometry.

Invited speakers include: Bernard de Wit, Jose Miguel Figueroa ‘O Farriill, Jim Gates,  Simone Giombi, Amit Giveon, Marco Gualtieri, Nigel Hitchin, Chris Hull, Sergei Kuzenko, Ulf Lindström, Juan Maldacena, Radu Roiban, Nathan Seiberg, Warren Siegel, Arkady Tseytlin, Cumrun Vafa, Stefan Vandoren, Peter van Nieuwenhuisen, Erik Verline, Rikard von Unge, Edward Witten

Workshop Application Deadline: July 22, 2018 (or when event is at maximum capacity). Applicants will be contacted soon after this date
