XXIX IFWGP, Covilhã, September 1-4, 2020


Event Details


We are pleased to announce the XXIX edition of the International Fall Workshop on Geometry and Physics (IFWGP), that will take place at the University of Beira Interior in Covilhã (Portugal) from September 1 to September 4, 2020.

This series of international workshops, held at Spanish and Portuguese universities and research centers, covers topics in the fields of Differential Geometry, Applied Mathematics and Physics. A non-exhaustive list of topics traditionally covered in the workshops is the following:

  • Classical and quantum field theory
  • Control theory
  • General Relativity
  • Geometric mechanics
  • Information geometry
  • Integrable systems
  • Lie algebroids and mechanics
  • Lorentz geometry
  • Mechanics of continuous media
  • Poisson geometry
  • Quantum geometry
  • Quantum gravity
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian geometry
  • String theory
  • Supergravity and supersymmetry
  • Symplectic and contact geometry
One of the main goals of the workshops is to bring together researchers of these and related areas to promote the exchange of ideas between geometers and physicists. The participation of young researchers is strongly encouraged so, please, disseminate this message among your students and also among your colleagues who might be interested in the workshop.

As in previous editions the workshop will include two mini-courses. This year the mini-courses will be given by:

  • PASCAL CHOSSAT (Laboratoire J.A. Dieudonné, Université Nice Sophia Antipolis, CNRS, France)
  • ELENA CELLEDONI (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway)
More information about the meeting, registration, abstract submission of contributed talks and other details can be found at the workshop webpage:
