Geometry and Quantum Theory (GQT)


The academic program consists of a 3 day graduate school and a 2 day conference.

Graduate School (August 28 – 30, 2023)

The aim of the GQT school is to provide participants with a basic understanding of some central topics in GQT research, including important themes which may lie outside one’s own research specialization. Hence, we strongly encourage graduate students to participate all three days as a way to broaden their mathematical formation and increase awareness of the research carried out within the cluster.

Another important aspect of the event is that it provides the opportunity for graduate students within the GQT cluster to get to know each other and have academic interactions.

The school consists of three days of lectures and exercise sessions; the topics and speakers are as follows:

Schedule (tentative)
