Braids, mutations and twists in algebra and geometry

Dates: May 31 - June 2 and June 7 - June 9, 2021
Fromat: All talks will be given online from 13:00 to 16:00 (CEST), after which discussion rooms will be open. Links to the talks will be sent to registered participants. Please register here.

The aim of this workshop is to explore the interactions between algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry and representation theory, focusing on categorical braid group actions and their relations to twists and mutations.
