We are excited to announce TR Salento 2021, a School + Workshop on Topological Recursion and related topics which will take place on September 6th - 17th 2021 in Otranto, Salento region, in the South of Italy.
TR Salento 2020 wants to promote synergies between different research groups and different areas of physics and mathematics related to topological recursion, integrable systems, and resurgence. It aims to provide value to communities which are new to the topics, to researchers that already have some experience in the field, and to the very experts.
That is the reason why the event has been designed in three different parts, each of which lasts four days and can be attended independently.
The first part provides basic courses. Its ideal audience consists mainly of graduate students and young researchers new to the topics.
The second part provides advanced courses. Both graduate students/young researchers new to the topics and researchers that already have some experience in the field are welcome to register to this part. Basic courses are meant to provide participants new to the topic the necessary tools to follow the second part. At the same time, advanced courses are intended to provide enough interesting new inputs for researchers in the field.
The third part consists of an open-problem collaboration-centered workshop, with very few talks, dedicated to open new synergies and strengthen interactions among experienced researchers in related fields. This part is reserved for researchers who have already been active either in the fields mentioned above, or have reasonable connections to them. More experienced members of the community will be encouraged to submit open problems a few months before the workshop date, and some of these problems will be selected by the organising committee. The selected problems proposers will be encouraged to present their ideas at the beginning of the workshop and lead the discussion in small groups for the following days. Researchers who will not have the possibility to attend the event have as well the possibility to submit problems and after selection present them in video-conference at the start of the workshop. We believe that providing the time and the space to a community of people that have a lot to share, together with a smidge of sun and marine breeze, can result in very valuable progress for science.
This event is organised by the ReNewQuantum ERC Synergy Grant team at IPhT and IHES: B. Eynard, E. Garcia-Failde, D. Lewanski and A. Ooms, in collaboration with the “Research group on integrable systems of the Dipartimento di Matematica e Fisica “E. De Giorgi”, Università del Salento”: M. Beccaria, B. Konopelchenko, G. Landolfi, L. Martina, R. Vitolo.
