The talks will be broadcast over Zoom. This will be via an institutional account (through either PI or the MPI). In order to participate please register by using the link to the registration form provided below. More information will follow.
There will be an opportunity for participants to contribute a 5-minute pre-recorded talk. If you are interested in participating, please enter the details in the registration form by May 31, 2020.
Originally we had planned to have a twinned conference held simultaneously at Max Planck Institute in Bonn, Germany and Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Canada. In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided that the conference "Geometric Representation Theory" will instead go forward as an online event. The concept of the twinned conference was motivated by the desire to reduce environmental impact of conference travels. Our hope is that this initiative will help reduce transatlantic flights, while still promoting long distance interactions.
In recent years, tools from algebraic geometry and mathematical physics have proven very influential in representation theory.  The most famous example is the geometric Langlands program, which is inspired by the original Langlands program in the function field case, but has also included advances in the theory of algebraic groups, Lie algebras and Cherednik algebras.  The goal of this twinned conference is to bring together experts in geometric representation theory and adjacent areas to discuss the forefront of current developments in this highly active field.
