The purpose of this Workshop is threefold: To learn about recent developments in the respective fields, about their open problems, and to have ample time for discussion of these open problems. Topics to be covered include:

  • Differential geometry,
  • Complex geometry,
  • Global Analysis on manifolds,
  • and all interactions between these areas.

All speakers are kindly invited to prepare talks which are roughly divided in three equal parts:
Introduction and motivation / recent results / open problems and possible new leads.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Manuel Amann and Christian Lange
  • Christian Lehn
  • Wenfei Liu
  • Tobias Hartnick
  • George Marinescu and Nikhil Savale
  • Karl-Hermann Neeb and Bas Janssens
  • Martin Kerin
  • Sylvie Paycha
  • Coleen Robles
  • Simon Salamon

There will be 4-5 talks on each day, and parallel "discussion sessions" at the end of each day. All participants are highly invited to participate in these discussion sessions, be it by contributing actively or just by listening. Some talks will be longer joint "tandem" talks by two speakers, hence allowing to merge open problems in neighbouring areas already in preparation of the meeting and to put them in a broader perspective.

In order to facilitate discussion, all speakers are asked to prepare a summary poster of their open problems, so that they can be put on poster boards and serve as a trigger for further discussion.

In addition, there will be a poster session open to all participants. These can list open problems as well.
