Description

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Locality and Functoriality in Symplectic Geometry" workshop in Oaxaca, from October 18 to October 23, 2020.


Symplectic geometry concerns symplectic manifolds. A key modern tool is an algebraic structure called the 'Fukaya category', which is associated to a single such object. Geometric relations between the manifolds are reflected in algebraic interactions between the categories. There has been a great deal of recent progress in understanding such relations. This workshop will bring together many of the key workers in this rapidly developing field to share ideas and set further directions of exploration.


The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
