Event/Organization Administration

This program seeks to connect recent developments and open questions in the theory of compact manifolds with special or exceptional holonomy (especially G_2 manifolds) with other areas of mathematics and theoretical physics: differential topology, algebraic geometry, (non compact) Calabi-Yau 3-folds, K3 surfaces, submanifold theory, J-holomorphic curves, gauge theory and M-theory in particular. One of the aims of the program is to bring to wider attention some of the problems in other parts of mathematics that have arisen recently in the theory of compact G_2 manifolds and to bring together experts from these disparate areas.
