Description

Within the broad range of geometric representation theory the Connections Workshop will focus on three research topics in which we expect particularly striking new developments within the next few years:
* Categorical and geometric structures in representation theory and Lie superalgebras
* Geometric construction of representations via Shimura varieties and related moduli spaces
* Hall algebras and representations

The workshop will bring together researchers from these different topics within geometric representation theory and will thus facilitate a successful start of the semester program. It will give junior researchers from each of these parts of geometric representation theory a broader picture of possible applications and of new developments, and will establish a closer contact between junior and senior researchers.

This workshop is aimed at encouraging and increasing the active participation of women and members of under-represented groups in the MSRI program.
