The subject of magnetic monopoles is by now classic in both physics and mathematics. Since intense advancements in mid 1970’s, numerous deep connections to theoretical physics, algebraic geometry, and geometric analysis have been discovered. Nonetheless, many important problems remain unsolved. Recently, monopoles acquired new significance in areas such as string theory, the Seiberg--Witten theory, quantum gauge-theory spaces of vacua, knot invariants, and the Geometric Langlands correspondence. This workshop brings together experts from around the world advancing very different perspectives, identify important open problems, and connecting diverse methods used by different groups.
