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.
