This workshop will feature several talks by experts, along with numerous 5-minute presentations by junior mathematicians, on topics related to Quantum Symmetry. Such topics will include tensor categories, subfactors, Hopf algebras, topological quantum field theory and more. There will also be a panel discussion on professional development. The majority of the speakers and panelists for this event will be women and gender minorities, and members of these groups and of other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to attend. This workshop is open to all mathematicians.
Additional funding provided by:
quantum invariants of knots and 3-manifolds
topological field theories
topological quantum computation
To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.
Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.
