The Simons Collaboration on Special Holonomy in Geometry, Analysis, and Physics will hold its second Annual Meeting at the Simons Foundation on September 13 & 14, 2018. Four of the collaboration’s principal investigators, together with postdoctoral fellows and guests, will present reports on the most recent developments in various aspects of the field of special holonomy, including the study of adiabatic limits, moduli problems, collapse, gluing constructions using methods from algebraic geometry, and connections with physics. They will discuss their research progress during the second year of the collaboration and the current directions of research.
