Shanks Workshop on Complex Differential Geometry

The Shanks Workshop on Complex Differential Geometry will be held at Vanderbilt University March 2 to March 3, 2018. The workshop will bring together leading researchers to present recent results and future directions of research in complex differential geometry with focus on one main problem: understanding canonical metrics in complex geometry. The topics to be discussed cover Kähler geometry, Hermitian geometry, Einstein-Maxwell metrics, and Sasakian geometry.

Speakers include Tristan Collins, Harvard University; Ronan Conlon, Florida International University; Claude LeBrun, Stony Brook University; Mehdi Lejmi, CUNY (Bronx Community College); Heather Macbeth, MIT; Yann Rollin, Université de Nantes (France) and Christina W. Tønnesen-Friedman, Union College.

Funding for the workshop is provided by the National Science Foundation, Vanderbilt University, and the Shanks endowment of the Vanderbilt Department of Mathematics. It is organized by Ioana Suvaina and Rares Rasdeaconu, both of Vanderbilt University.
