Meeting Goals:

The goal of this meeting is to build on and uncover new structures in the rapidly evolving field of low-dimensional topology. We aim to emphasize new-found interactions with a wide array of other mathematical disciplines and mathematical physics, bringing tools from categorification and representation theory, homological algebra, symplectic geometry, contact geometry, gauge theory, and analysis. Talks in this workshop will engage researchers from across these disciplines, forging a common language and understanding of key challenges.  A focus will be made on highlighting future directions for collaborations and opportunities for interaction between perspectives.
