Princeton Low-Dimensional Topology Workshop 2015

Monday, June 15, 2015 - 8:45am to Friday, June 19, 2015 - 8:45pm
The workshop will focus on recent developments in low-dimensional topology, with a particular emphasis on modern homological invariants such as Heegaard Floer homology. The workshop is open to anyone; if you wish to register and be included in the mailing list for workshop related updates, please see the conference website at:, June 15[09:30-10:30] Cagatay Kutluhan, University at Buffalo[10:30-11:00] Coffee[11:00-12:00] John Baldwin, Boston College, Lagrangian concordance and contact invariants in sutured Floer theories [14:15-15:15] Yi Ni, California Institute of Technology[15:15-16:00] Tea[16:00-17:00] Daniel Ruberman, Brandeis UniversityTuesday, June 16[09:30-10:30] John Etnyre, Georgia Institute of Technology[10:30-11:00] Coffee[11:00-12:00] Olga Plamenevskaya, Stonybrook University[14:15-15:15] Lucas Culler, Princeton University[15:15-16:00] Tea[16:00-17:00] Dylan Thurston, Indiana UniversityWednesday, June 17[09:30-10:30] Elisenda Grigsby, Boston College[10:30-11:00] Coffee[11:00-12:00] Jen Hom, Columbia University, Knot Floer homology and concordance [14:15-15:15] Matthew Hedden, Michigan State University[15:15-16:00] Tea[16:00-17:00] Aliakbar Daemi, Simons Center for Geometry and PhysicsThursday, June 18[09:30-10:30] Kristen Hendricks, University of California at Los Angeles, Involutive Heegaard Floer homology [10:30-11:00] Coffee[11:00-12:00] Tye Lidman, University of Texas at Austin, Knot contact homology detects torus knots [14:15-15:15] Bohua Zhan, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Combinatorial constructions of Heegaard Floer homology using bordered invariants [15:15-16:00] Tea[16:00-17:00] Zoltán Szabó, Princeton University, Algebraic methods in knot Floer homology Friday, June 19[09:00-10:00] Robert Lipshitz, Columbia University, Remarks on equivariant Floer homology  [10:00-10:15] Coffee[10:15-11:15] Josh Greene, Boston College, Definite surfaces and alternating links
