7 January to 11 January 2019
The first week of this workshop will make the recent rapid developments in the areas of quantum link homologies and higher representation theory accessible to non-experts and intensify communication between specialists in these and related areas like gauge theory, TQFT, quantum Teichmüller theory, and string theory.
Lecturers include Sergei Gukov (Caltech), Mikhail Khovanov (Columbia U), Aaron Lauda (USC) and Thang Le (Georgia Tech).
14 January to 18 January 2019
The second week will be used to host a research conference with thematic emphasis on categorification of skein theory and 3-manifold invariants.
