A conference focused on the topics of moduli spaces, including configuration spaces and hyperplane arrangements, braid groups, mapping class groups and quantum representations. The goal is to bring together researchers working in different areas under the general umbrella of "moduli spaces" and to encourage the discovery of new connections between these areas.
