Workshop on the Geometry and Physics of Higgs bundles IV


Simons Center for Geometry and Physics 
March 16-17, 2019

Preceeding the week-long workshop

This workshop, fourth in a series of Graduate workshops on Higgs bundles, is aimed at graduate students and young postdocs, will expose participants to some current research topics on the geometry and physics of Higgs bundles.  

The Lecture notes will apprear in the special issue of SIGMA (Symmetry, Integrability and Geometry: Methods and Applications)

Special Issue on Geometry and Physics of Hitchin Systems

For any questions regarding the meeting, please email
Laura Schaposnik at,
Support provided by SCGP, NSF RTG grant DMS-1246844
And Laura P. Schaposnik's NSF CAREER Award

Funding for Travel and Lodging is available for graduate students and post-docs. Please apply before the deadline of February 15st - applications will be reviewed as they arrive and notification of funding will only take a few weeks. 

The workshop preceeds the SCGP meeting:
A Workshop on Challenges at the Interface of Hitchin Systems and String Theory: March 18 – 22, 2019


3 hs of Lectures and 3 hs Problem sessions each.
