Pisa: Centro De Giorgi

This workshop gathers researchers in the areas of Differential and Riemannian Geometry and Geometric Analysis. The main focus is on the studies of special Riemannian metrics on smooth manifolds (such as Einstein, Yamabe and Bach flat metrics), variational aspects of curvature functionals (such as Yang-Mills and quadratic functionals) and canonical embeddings (such as minimal and Willmore hypersurfaces). Apart from research talks, the workshop will have two mini-courses by: Sun-Yung Alice Chang (Princeton University) and Claude LeBrun (Stony Brook University).

The workshop will take place in person, with a maximum of 50 attendants (this might change later). Upon reaching this maximum limit, registration will close automatically. In the event of impediments due to the Covid-19 pandemic measures, parts of the scheduled activities of the workshop could be conducted remotely.

There are some limited funds for financial support of PhD Students and young post-docs. Deadline to apply: April 17, 2022.

Registration deadline: May 6th, 2022.
