The Conferences on Ultra-Quantum Matter will bring together researchers from a variety of backgrounds who are making key contributions to the study of UQM. The first meeting will focus on identifying promising visions for building bridges between the theory of UQM and real matter in the lab.
The Simons Collaboration on Special Holonomy in Geometry, Analysis, and Physics will hold its first Annual Meeting at the Simons Foundation on September 14 & 15, 2017. Four of its principal investigators and four of its postdoctoral fellows 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 first year of the collaboration and the current directions of research.
