UPCOMING CONFERENCES, SEMINARS AND MEETINGS
**********************************************************************

The Division of Applied Mathematics and the Lefschetz Center for Dynamical Systems at Brown University will be hosting a two-day workshop on agent-based modeling on March 21st-22nd 2015. The aim of this workshop is to introduce students and young researchers to agent-based modeling by having a small group of experts give research presentations and tutorials as well as directly involving students through a “math slam” (brief 5 minute presentations) and poster presentations. Applications for funding for this workshop can be submitted through mathprograms.org at https://www.mathprograms.org/db/programs/356 .

To apply for funding to this program you must be a U.S. citizen.

Representation Theory and Geometry of Symplectic Resolutions

Date: May 18, 2015 - May 21, 2015
Location: Northeastern University, Boston

URL: http://math.mit.edu/conferences/symplectic-resolutions/index.php

Description:

The conference will concentrate on the representation theoretic and geometric
questions connected to symplectic singularities and their resolutions. Related
aspects of the geometric and categorical representation theory will also be
discussed.
