Some local information: Since the ESI is part of the
University of Vienna since June 1, there have been some recent changes
in the administration. In particular, this concerns the way per-diems
are paid. If you will get a per-diem from the ESI to cover your
expenses in Vienna (see ESI invitation letter), you will be reimbursed
via bank transfer. Thus, please have the following personal bank
details ready upon arrival:
Proceedings: While we do not plan to publish proceedings, participants have the opportunity to submit articles related to the workshop a regular issue of Central European Journal of Mathematics (CEJM) dedicated to "Finite dimensional integrable systems, dynamics, and Lie theoretic methods in geometry and mathematical physics".
Prospective authors are kindly invited to register at the CEJM paper processing system and submit their contribution using a special track established for this topical issue. Alternatively, a manuscript can be sent directly to any of guest editors (Andreas Cap, Karin Melnik or Vladimir Matveev). The deadline for paper submission will be 31.10.2011. All articles will go through the standard peer-review process.
Background and aims: Cartan connections offer a general framework for the description of certain differential-geometric structures. The basic idea of this description is that the manifolds endowed with a Cartan geometry are described as ``curved analogs'' of a homogeneous space, called the homogeneous model of the geometry. The existence of an equivalent description of a geometric structure as a Cartan geometry usually is not straightforward but the result of a theorem, sometimes a rather difficult one. Usually, such results say that some structures give rise to a canonical Cartan connection. Several classical results in these directions go back to Élie Cartan.
Many of the geometric structures that can be equivalently described as Cartan geometries are studied independently by other means as well, and there are many recent examples of very fruitful interaction between these communities and people working on Cartan geometries. The aim of our workshop is to intensify this exchange. It is planned for two weeks with different emphasis and different participants in the two weeks, with some overlap. The main focus in the first week will be conformal geometry and its generalizations, while in week two, we want to focus on relations between Cartan geometries and dynamics.
We aim for substantial participation by graduate students and early-career mathematicians, and we welcome suggestions of potential participants from this group.
Specific topics for the week on conformal geometry include
