Young persons workshop on

String Topology
and the
Topology of Moduli Spaces

Stanford University
March 24-27, 2008

This is a workshop whose goal is to introduce topology graduate  
students and postdoctoral researchers to recent work in the areas of  
string topology and the algebraic topology of moduli spaces.  The  
program will consist of short lecture series given by some of the  
leading young people in the field.

Speakers and Titles of Lecture Series

•	Mohammed Abouzaid (MIT)  Applications of string topology to  
symplectic geometry

•	Soren Galatius (Stanford University) The topology of cobordism  
categories

•	Veronique Godin  (Harvard University) Graphs in the study of moduli  
spaces and string topology

•	Paolo Salvatore (University of Rome II) Generalizations and  
applications of string topology

•	Bernardo Uribe (Universidad de Los Andes) Orbifolds and stringy  
topology

•	Nathalie Wahl (University of Copenhagen) Stability theorems in the  
homology of mapping class groups

  •	Craig Westerland (University of Wisconsin) Homotopy theoretic  
aspects of string topology

Space and financial resources for this workshop are limited.   
Unfortunately there  will be no funding available for airfare, but we  
hope to cover the cost  of accommodations for all registered  
participants.  To find more details and to apply for registration,  
please go to the following webpage:

This workshop is part of the emphasis program on the Geometry and  
Topology of Moduli Spaces at the
Mathematics Research Center
Stanford University
