Workshop on Symplectic Field Theory

January 3-7, 2007

The Facultad de Ciencias of the Universidad de Colima will hold its first Workshop in Geometry. The topic of this workshop is Symplectic Field Theory. This is to be part of a series of annual workshops with the purpose of promoting the development of new areas of geometry in Mexico.

SFT was introduced by Y. Eliashberg, A. Givental and H. Hofer in the late 1990's. This meeting will provide some background, introduce SFT and cover current advances in the field. There will be two minicourses of 3 hours each and four lectures of one hour each. These will be given by experts in the field.
