Quantum Key Distribution Summer School
While classical cryptographic schemes always have to fear the risk of being broken, in particular with the possibility that quantum computers are built, quantum cryptography promises unconditional security solely based on the laws of physics. This field of research is currently in an exciting phase in which theoretical concepts and ideas are not only experiencing […]

Quantization in Representation Theory, Derived Algebraic Geometry, and Gauge Theory
Quantization is the mathematical tool to understand the transition between classical and quantum mechanics. Intuitively, classical mechanics is the limit of quantum mechanics as the quantum parameter tends to zero and, conversely, quantization is “an algorithm by which a quantum system corresponds to a classical dynamical one” (F.A. Berezin). The ultimate goal of this workshop […]

Workshop on Resurgence, wallcrossing & geometry
The theory of resurgence was developed to provide a deeper understanding of asymptotic series in various fields of mathematics. More recently, this theory has been applied to problems in geometry and topology, leading to a new perspective on enumerative invariants in threemanifold topology and in algebraic geometry. A remarkable synthesis is emerging, relating analytic invariants […] 
19 January 2025  24 January 2025 
Algebra and Quantum Geometry of BPS Quivers
BPS states provide a computable sector for addressing fundamental questions on nonperturbative dynamics in both gauge theory and string theory. Significant progress on this subject has emerged in recent years from various directions of research, spurred by foundational work on WallCrossing within the past decade. The workshop will focus on the most recent developments on […]

New Frontiers in Extremal and Probabilistic Combinatorics
Problems in Extremal and Probabilistic Combinatorics seek to understand the maximum/minimum value attainable by one parameter of a discrete structure assuming only the value of another parameter of that structure. The discrete structure can be either deterministic, or drawn from some distribution. For example, the discrete structure can be a graph, and the question can […]

Stochastic Equations and Stochastic Dynamics
Tremendous progress has been made in the field of differential equations, including partial differential equations with noise. Fuelled by new techniques and modelling requirements, we can now handle a broader range of stochastic differential equations and stochastic partial differential equations. For instance, the solution theory for the KPZ equation and its cousin, the Stochastic Heat […]

Summer school: Homological aspects of groups and their classifying spaces
This summer school focuses on exciting recent developments at the intersection of geometric group theory and algebraic topology. The full force of the tools and ideas in the interplay between these two subjects have yet to be exploited. The aim of this school is to expose young researchers to the results and questions arising from […]

Effective theories for manybody systems out of equilibrium
Despite their complexity, strongly correlated quantum and classical manybody systems have simpler effective descriptions when looking at behaviours that happen at long times or large distances. Intuitively, this is because of “thermalisation”, and related notions: the accumulation, over time and space, of a large number of complex interactions amongst local degrees of freedom, “washes out” […]

Mathematical Foundations of Biological Organization
Most of theoretical biology is currently restricted to modeling and statistical analysis. However, mathematicians and theoretical physicists increasingly search for general principles underlying life, and several instances of mathematical insights about biological facts have appeared recently. For example, the proposers have studied the principles of mechanics and evolution of allosteric proteins (JPE, [1]) and the […]

Polylogarithms, homology of linear groups, and Steinberg modules
Algebraic Ktheory is one of the central and ubiquitous objects of modern mathematics. It plays an important role in such diverse fields as number theory, geometry, and mathematical physics. One characteristic feature of it is that, more often than not, algebraic Ktheory is immensely hard to describe explicitly. A variety of conjectures have been proposed […] 
15 June 2025  27 June 2025 
2025 SCGCS School Topological Symmetries and Defects in Quantum Field Theory (Workshop & School)
Quantum field theory (QFT) is the universal language of modern theoretical physics. Originally developed to describe the interaction of light and matter, QFT has since found spectacular applications in particle, condensed matter, and statistical physics, as well as in cosmology and string theory. Some of the most profound open problems about the physics of nontopological […]

The Amplituhedron: Structure, Combinatorics, and Positive Geometry
The amplituhedron is a remarkably elegant geometric object that was discovered in 2013 in the context of studying scattering amplitudes in theoretical particle physics (specifically, in planar N = 4 super YangMills theory). It presents a radically different way to calculate fundamental quantities in quantum field theory, in which longstanding principles such as unitarity and […]

Intersections of Topological Recursion, Conformal Field Theory, and Random Geometry
A twodimensional conformal field theory (2DCFT) is a quantum field theory on a Euclidean twodimensional space, that is invariant under local conformal transformations. In contrast to other types of conformal field theories, 2DCFTs have infinitedimensional symmetry algebras. In some cases, this allows them to be solved exactly — at least in the physics sense. Mathematicians […]

International Workshop on Automorphic Forms
Modular forms, and more generally automorphic forms, is a classical topic that has been studied since the 19th century. Over time, the subject has evolved into a large research area with unexpected and farreaching connections to many different domains. Recently, there have been spectacular development and applications such as • applying nonclassical modular forms to […]

From research to outreach
This event would be jointly organized by the “Swiss Mathematical Society”and the “Société Mathématique de France”. The intertwining of research and outreach is a deeply federating topic for both mathematical societies, and will allow researchers from all fields to join. We propose a conference enabling researchers to create outreach content from their own research, and […]
