An NCTS-CPT Joint Workshop on "Symplectic Geometry and Quantum Symmetries in Mathematical Physics" will be held at the National Center for Theoretical Sciences on February 21-25, 2011.

The workshop is organized by the National Center for Theoretical Sciences (NCTS, Hsinchu, Taiwan) and the Centre de Physique Théorique (CPT, Marseille, France). It is mostly supported by NCTS.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together mathematicians and mathematical physicists with various backgrounds to discuss prospective advances in the areas covered by the title. Another purpose is to foster interactions between several groups of french and taiwanese scientists working in those fields. Interested researchers from all countries are invited to attend. We hope to attract PhD students, post doctoral students and young scholars.


Non restrictive list of topics to be discussed at the conference: moment maps and symplectic quotients, contact homology, lagrangian submanifolds, geometric quantization and supermanifolds, conformally equivariant quantization, symplectic geometry and categories, symplectic geometry and diffeological spaces, Gromov-Witten invariants, quantum symmetries and module-categories, reduction algebras and representation theory, Hopf algebras and generalizations, Virasoro algebras and generalizations, vertex operator algebras, cluster algebras, integrable systems.
