Additional Information: 
SWAGP2017 is the 18th event of a series of Schools and Workshops that have been organized by the Mathematical Physics and Geometry group of the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste in conjunction with leading institutions around the world. Past events have taken place in Trieste, Como and Genova (Italy), Salamanca and Medina del Campo (Spain), Luminy and St Jean de Monts (France),  Lisbon (Portugal), Philadelphia (USA), Vienna (Austria), Seoul (Korea), Maresias (Brazil), Tianjin and Hangzhou (China), Leiden (Netherlands), Guanajuato (Mexico).
 
This year's topic will be 
 
HIGGS MODULI SPACES AND CHARACTER VARIETIES
 
We plan to have some 4 hour courses, 4 one-hour talks and a small number of 30 minute contributed talks by young participants.
 
LECTURERS:
 
Marta Mazzocco (University of Loughborough, UK)
Tony Pantev (University of Pennsylvania, USA)
Fernando Rodriguez Villegas (ICTP, Italy)
Olivier Schiffmann (Université Paris-Sud and CNRS, France)
 
SPEAKERS:
 
Erik Carlsson (UC Davis, USA)
Ben Davison (Glasgow University, UK)
Sven Meinhardt (University of Sheffield, UK)
Anton Mellit (IST Vienna, Austria)
 
Some funds should be available to support, at least partially, the participation of some young scientists. During this event the “Elsevier Young Scientist Award” will be granted. 
 
The web page of the conference is: https://indico.sissa.it/e/swagp2017. Perspective participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible via the conference web page. During the registration process you can also submit a title and abstract for a contributed talk (deadline: April 30, 2017) and apply for financial support (deadline: March 31, 2017).
