Non-Archimedean geometry, motives and vanishing cycles

26 June - 30 June 2017

Recent years have witnessed important developments at the interplay between non-archimedean geometry, motives and vanishing cycles.
The workshop will  gather specialists and young researchers working in these different areas with the aim to take stock of the current state of art and to foster further interactions. In particular we intend to have lectures on the following topics: rigid motives, matrix factorizations, vanishing cycles, and derived non-archimedean geometry. 

We plan to keep the number of talks small in order to put emphasis on informal discussion and interaction between participants: we intend to have three series of three lectures on the main topics of the workshop together with a limited number of single talks.

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.
