Topological and Quantitative Aspects of Symplectic Manifolds
A Conference in Honor of Dusa McDuff's 70th Birthday
Hosted by Barnard College and Columbia University
March 17 - 20, 2016
  

The conference will center around recent developments in three main areas: interactions of symplectic and contact topology with singularity theory; Hamiltonian symmetries in symplectic topology; and quantitative problems in symplectic topology, including packing problems.

Organizers: Mohammed Abouzaid, Ailsa Keating, Robert Lipshitz, Walter Neumann, and Lisa Traynor
