Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the original program has been canceled. However, the meeting will be conducted through online lectures.
Knots are fundamental objects of study in low dimensional topology and appear in diverse areas of sciences. Knot theory has seen tremendous progress in the recent years. The aim of this online program is to familiarise and enthuse younger researchers about the latest advances in the subject with a particular emphasis on computational aspects of (co)homological, combinatorial and polynomial invariants of knots.
The pedagogical talks will be delivered by the following well-known experts in the field:
(1) Abhijit Champanerkar (City University of New York, USA)
(2) Andrei Vesnin (Sobolev Institute of Mathematics, Novosibirsk, Russia)
(3) Jozef H. Przytycki (The George Washington University, USA)
(4) Louis H. Kauffman (University of Illinois at Chicago, USA)
(5) Mohamed Elhamdadi (University of South Florida, USA)
(6) Seiichi Kamada (Osaka University, Osaka, Japan)
(7) Valeriy Bardakov (Sobolev Institute of Mathematics, Novosibirsk, Russia)
The primary audience of the program will be PhD students, post doctoral fellows and young faculty members working in low dimensional topology and adjoining areas.
PhD students, post doctoral fellows and faculty members working in low dimensional topology and adjoining areas. A few motivated master level students with demonstrable mathematical maturity may also be considered.
