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. At the moment the number of participants is limited to 50, but it should be increased if the pandemic situation would improve. In the event of impediments due to the Covid-19 pandemic measures, parts of the scheduled activities of the workshop could be conducted remotely.
