“Workshop on Geometry
November 20 – 25, 2016
Ringberg Castle, Tegernsee
The workshop will take place at Ringberg Castle,
which is located on Mount Ringberg and
overlooks Lake Tegernsee,
one of the most picturesque locations to be found in all of southern Bavaria. The
is owned and operated by the Max-Planck-Society, represents an ideal
scientific conferences, offering impressive architecture, displays of
a music room, excellent food, spectacular views of the surrounding
not to mention the fresh air and great walks.
More specific information on the Ringberg
Castle, including colored

This workshop is held in
memoriam of Ioannis Bakas, who sadly passed away on 30. August 2016.
Ioannis was a very good friend of us, a fantastic person and an
excellent colleague and scientist. His death is a big loss for the
entire physics community.
This event is the third in the series of workshops on "Geometry
and Physics", jointly organized by Ioannis Bakas and by us. The aim of
this workshop is to bring together leading experts from the
physics and mathematics communities to present their ideas and assess
progress that is being made on the interface of geometry and physics.
Special emphasis will be placed on the theory of quantum fields and
strings and their mathematical structures.
Arrival and Departure
arrival date to the conference site is Nov. 20th and the departure
date is Nov. 25th after lunch. Talks will start on Monday morning 21st
end at noon on Friday 25th Nov.
