The workshop will focus on recent advances in geometric representation theory and moduli spaces, including progress on geometric and categorical Langlands correspondence, the theory of conformal blocks, the geometry of affine flag varieties and Grassmannians, and the related representation theory. The workshop will bring together experts in these areas, with an emphasis on the work of younger mathematicians.
This workshop will be supported by the conference grant DMS-2328483.
The workshop will be held at university of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, starting from the afternoon of November 17 and ending in the afternoon of November 19.
