Graduate Workshops on Higgs bundles, University of Illinois
November 11, 2017 @ 8:00 am - November 12, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
These workshops are split into 2-day meetings where you will find a population of mostly female researchers, speakers, and graduate students from the US and Canada, previously run in collaboration with AWM. The meeting stimulated many new directions of investigation and collaboration that are ongoing and generates a mixed audience of around 70-80 people. First there will be the RTG Workshop on the Geometry and Physics of Higgs bundles II from Nov. 11-12. This workshop will expose participants to some current research topics on the geometry and physics of Higgs bundles (http://schapos.people.uic.edu/Higgs-2017.html)
The workshop will be followed by the meeting Current trends on spectral data for Higgs bundles III from Nov. 13-14, both will be held at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
