GESTA 2013 (Topological, Symplectic and Contact Spring in Toulouse)
Month: June 2013
Date: June 3--7
Name: GESTA 2013 (Topological, Symplectic and Contact Spring in Toulouse)
Location: Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France.
GESTA is an acronym for Geometría Simpléctica con Técnicas algebraicas (Symplectic Geometry with Algebraic Techniques). It is the name of a Spanish group of mathematicians interested in symplectic geometry, algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. The group organizes a workshop every year. The workshop 2013 will be held in Toulouse, and is of course open to everyone.
Four minicourses will be taught during this workshop on topics covering the different aspects of symplectic geometry in a wide sense. Joel Fine (Université Libre de Bruxelles); Viktor Ginzburg (University of California, Santa Cruz); Emmy Murphy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology); Nguyen Tien Zung (Université de Toulouse III).
All courses will be taught in English.
Limited funding for graduate students will be available.
