The IHES 2020 Summer School, “Motivic, Equivariant and Non-commutative Homotopy Theory”, is organised by Aravind Asok (University of Southerm California), Frédéric Déglise (CNRS Dijon), Grigory Garkusha (Swansea University) and Paul Arne Østvær (University of Oslo). It will be held from 6 to 17 July 2020 at the IHES and will focus on topics in motivic and equivariant homotopy theory, and non-commutative geometry.
These three subjects are currently experiencing a phase of intense growth and development:
- long-standing central conjectures have been solved;
- existing theories are being perfected;
- many new foundational developments are being made on this basis.
It’s expected that these developments will spur many further advances and interactions in the near future.
The lecture series and research talks at the IHES Summer School will focus on presenting the latest developments in topics related to categories of motives, calculational and foundational aspects of motivic and equivariant homotopy theory, and the generalisations of these tools and techniques in the setting of non-commutative geometry.
For two weeks, international experts on the topic will give mini-courses :
Clark Barwick (University of Edinburgh), Jean Fasel (University Joseph Fourier – Grenoble), Daniel Isaksen (Wayne State University), Dmitry Kaledin (Steklov Mathematical Institute), Marc Levine (Universität Duisburg-Essen), Ivan Panin (St. Petersburg Department of Mathematics), Goncalo Tabuada (MIT Department of Mathematics / University of Warwick).
The IHES Summer School is open to everybody, but intended primarily for young participants, including PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. Applications for IHES Summer School are open until 31 March 2020, more information on the IHES Summer School webpage.
