Institut Fourier - Amphi (lecture theatre) Chabauty
Aim and Scope
The Landau-Ginzburg model has been known to be an important model in physics for a long time. In the recent years, much progress has been made toward understanding it mathematically. Its role in mirror symmetry, the Landau-Ginzburg/Calabi-Yau correspondence, and connections to integrable hierarchies are all becoming increasingly important. The aim of this conference will be to bring together distinguished speakers from enumerative geometry of the moduli space of curves, homological mirror symmetry, singularity theory, and string theory to interchange ideas and learn about the most important advances from each other.
The list of speakers includes - Serguei Barannikov (Paris) - Boris Dubrovin (Trieste) - Carel Faber (Stockholm) - Huijun Fan (Beijing) - Claus Hertling (Mannheim) - Kentaro Hori (Tokyo) - Hiroshi Iritani (Kyushu) - Tyler Jarvis (Provo) - Albrecht Klemm (Bonn) - Yongbin Ruan (Ann Arbor) - Claude Sabbah (Paris) - Kyoji Saito (Kyoto) - Yefeng Shen (Ann Arbor) - Sergey Shadrin (Amsterdam) - Eric Sharpe (Virginia) - Atsushi Takahashi (Osaka) - Arkady Vaintrob (Eugene) - Johannes Walcher (Genève)
