Women at the Intersection of Mathematics and Theoretical Physics

COVID-19 information for PI Residents and Visitors

Conference Date: 
Monday, February 22, 2021 (All day) to Thursday, February 25, 2021 (All day)
Scientific Areas: 
Mathematical Physics

This event has been postponed from November 2020 to February 2021.

This (online) meeting aims to create new bridges between mathematics and physics and to strengthen the existing ones, by bringing together women mathematicians and physicists from various horizons working on the border of these two disciplines. It is aimed at identifying new trends of research at the frontier between mathematics, quantum field theory and string theory and exploring how they intertwine.

By essence an interdisciplinary meeting, it is expected to trigger interactions between the senior and junior participants, who will be encouraged to meet up in a mentoring scheme as part of the conference programme. The scientific programme of the meeting will be geared around three transversal topics: Symmetry and Duality, Locality and Singularity,Topological and Geometric Invariants.
