Geometric, Algebraic and Topological Methods in Quantum Field Theory

Villa de Leyva, Colombia  2023

Aim of the school

This school is the 11th in a series of summer schools that have been taking place every other year since July 1999, with a gap since 2019. The topics of the schools lie on the border between geometry, topology, algebra and quantum field theory, and they offer courses addressed to both physicists and mathematicians .

The school will take place in Villa de Leyva , from July 31 to August 9 of 2023. A total of 10 days during which the lecturers, leaders in their  fields, will give both mini-courses and specialized talks related to their research. The lectures will be addressed to Master  and PhD level  students, and other interested scientists who want to get acquainted with the respective fields.

The courses are meant to serve as an introduction to active areas of research. The length of each course will range from 5 to 7 hours. 

We plan to post the lecture notes on the school's web site and to publish them in a proceedings volume, following the tradition of the previous schools. Participants will be given the opportunity to present their research which may, eventually, be considered for publication in the proceedings subject to the approval of a referee. Also, there will be poster sessions where students will be able to present their masters work or their partial results on their Ph.D. research.

 As it was the case for the past schools, we expect the beautiful setting in the small colonial town of Villa de Leyva and the friendly atmosphere at the school to be propitious to numerous interactions between lecturers and participants.
