Shanks Workshop in Homotopy Theory, April 13-14
The Shanks Workshop in Homotopy Theory 2019 will be held at Vanderbilt University April 13 to 14. The workshop will bring together researchers in algebraic topology from the South and Midwest to discuss the latest developments in the field.
The past decade has seen an exciting expansion in the influence of homotopical techniques across a variety of areas. The workshop speakers reflect the breadth of current research. They will discuss connections of homotopy theory to physics, number theory, and enumerative geometry, as well as new results within homotopy theory itself.
The speakers include Dan Freed of the University of Texas at Austin, Bert Guillou of the University of Kentucky, Emily Riehl of Johns Hopkins University, Craig Westerland of the University of Minnesota, Kirsten Wickelgren of the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Inna Zakharevich of Cornell University.
Support for the workshop is provided by the National Science Foundation and the Shanks Endowment of the Department of Mathematics. The organizers are Anna Marie Bohmann and Jonathan Campbell, both of Vanderbilt University. More information is available on the workshop website.
