Mathematics and Physics of Knots

24 June - 28 June 2019

A classical field in mathematics with long and prominent history going back to at least Gauss in 1833, the study of knots has recently got a spotlight as one of the most active venues of research at the intersection of mathematics and theoretical physics. This workshop, intended as a satellite to the String-Math conference taking place in Uppsala one week later, aims to bring together researchers from both disciplines to serve as a platform for discussion and promote collaboration on this exiciting subject.

Warning regarding possible accommodation scam

It has come to our knowledge that someone posing as a representative for Institut Mittag-Leffler and the organisers of our summer conferences 2019, has been contacting participants regarding accommodation.

This is not supported by the institute or our organisers, and we would like to warn anyone being contacted in this matter to not share any credit card or personal details.

Please contact the administration at Institut Mittag-Leffler if any questions would arise.
