Symplectic geometry has been one of the most rapidly advancing areas of mathematics over the past ten years. Its strong connections to mathematical physics, and in particular the mirror symmetry conjecture, have been the source of many fascinating developments. Pseudo-holomorphic curves have been studied extensively, and tools such as Gromov-Witten invariants and Floer homology have revolutionized our understanding of symplectic manifolds. Meanwhile, low-dimensional topology, gauge theory (in particular Seiberg-Witten invariants), and monodromy techniques have also been the source of important contributions to the field. The following areas of research are particularly active at the moment, and will be the main topics of the workshop:
- Gromov-Witten invariants and quantum cohomology
- Floer homology, mirror symmetry, and string theory
- Lefschetz pencils, gauge theory, and low-dimensional topology
- Hamiltonian group actions and moment maps
- contact homology and symplectic field theory
