Singularities and Low Dimensional Topology - 2023 Spring (Feb-June)

Organizers Octave Curmi, Javier Fernández de Bobadilla, Marco Marengon, András Némethi, András Stipsicz, Zoltán Szabó, Vera Vértesi
Publication date 2021-08-16

The semester on "Singularities and low dimensional topology" will focus on recent developments in the theory of surface singularities, and the connection of this discipline with low dimensional topology, and in particular, to Heegaard Floer homology. We expect that the interaction between these two fields will enhance our understanding of both. The interplay between topological and analytic invariants of isolated surface singularities will be of special interest.

Several activities will be organised in conjunction with the research semester: there will be a winter school, three research conferences, a learning master class, and some research weeks focused on chosen subjects.
Below are the key dates of the semester.

- Winter school: 20-27 January 2023
- The singular workshop: 6-10 March 2023
- The low dimensional workshop: 27-31 March 2023
- The interactive workshop: 12-16 June 2023
- Master class: TBA
- Focused weeks: TBA

Contextually to the research semester, we are hiring a number of 6-month or 1-year postdocs and of visiting professor. The application deadline for all positions is 28 February 2022. Please click on the following links for the job announcements:
