Event will happen over two different time windows (one suited to India/Eurasia and the other suited to the Americas) to enable participation from around the world. Register for Zoom info. Youtube streaming link available on RS and webpage.

The focus areas for this meeting will be:

(1) The Local and Global Geometric Langlands program in its various forms and extensions thereof. This includes purely mathematical approaches and also physics inspired approaches based on Gauge theory and two dimensional Conformal Field Theory.

(2) Recent advances in studying theories with eight supercharges in four and three dimensions. This includes detailed constructions of their vacuum moduli spaces, chiral ring structure, the study of dualities, exact results, connections to TQFTs, chiral algebras etc.

List of Speakers :

Mini-courses : Mina Aganagic, Mathew Bullimore, Amihay Hanany, Jacques Hurtubise, Madalena Lemos, Hiraku Nakajima, Ana Peon-Nieto, Sam Raskin, Joerg Teschner and Edward Witten.
