2ND WORKSHOP ON COMBINATORICS OF MODULI SPACES,
CLUSTER ALGEBRAS, AND SYMPLECTIC INVARIANTS
May 24-28, 2010,
Laboratoire J.-V. Poncelet, Steklov Mathematical Institute,
and the Higher School of Economics
After the 1st workshop took place in Moscow in June 2008, the dramatic progress has been done in the field of bringing together combinatorics inspired by matrix model techniques and by the equations of the cut-and-join type to provide the generating functions of many algebraic-geometrical invariants including the Hurwitz numbers and symplectic invariants. At the same time, the combinatorial description of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces and related quantization topics together with the related issues in cluster algebras continue to thrive, including generalizations to algebras of higher rank, constructing cycles on moduli spaces and investigating the related algebraic structures including those of the Schlesinger system type.
We hope to bring together specialists actively working in the field for exchanging ideas in the environment of summer-fresh Moscow. The workshop will take place at two locations: the Independent University of Moscow (3 days) and the Steklov Mathematical Institute (2 days). We recommend to reserve Saturday, 29th of May, for sightseeing Moscow. The Independent University is situated in one of picturesque areas of downtown Moscow; the Steklov Mathematical Institute is situated near Leninsky Prospect --- one of the main Moscow streets --- and in the area where most of Academic Institutions and the Moscow State University are located.
Organizing Committee: Leonid Chekhov, Liza Kryukova, Sergei Lando, Armen Sergeev, and Michael Tsfasman
We expect short series (2-3) of 1-hour-long lectures and 1-hour long research talks.
Among those who already
agreed to give a talk/series of lectures are J. Andersen
The registration fee is 150 USD for foreign participants (paid upon arrival by those who can cover it from their grants or institutions) and 3000 roubles for participants from the FSU (also paid for those who can cover it from their grants). This covers also the welcome party and the conference dinner.
The organizers provide reasonable accommodation for free/budget price (50 USD/night) at the Steklov Institute Guest House and at the Guest House for visiting professors at the Higher School of Economy.
All nationals except for
some countries of the FSU need visas to enter
Due to limited funding,
the organizers cannot cover travel expenses of the participants when
For the registration, please, contact the Organizing Committee before May, 1th on the first opportunity. It will be extremely helpful if you include a tentative title of your talk.
