BIGW 2019 — British Isles Graduate Workshop 2019

9th June 2019   -   15th June 2019
Jersey, United Kingdom


BIGWIII is the third edition of the annual summer workshop on themes in geometry. The theme of this workshop will be "Gauge Theory with a View to Higher Dimensions". The goal is to bring together a group of approximately 25 graduate students to work on a specific topic under the guidance of three senior mathematicians. The majority of the talks will be given by the participants, and there will be time in the afternoons and evenings for further discussions and more informal sessions. The character of the workshop is expository in nature, starting with the basic ideas and leading to a survey of the most recent developments in the field; no prior knowledge of the topic will be assumed. Since both the participants and the mentors will be living in the same building, we hope to create an informal, yet mathematically intensive, atmosphere.
