Motohico Mulase (University of California, Davis), Craig Hodgson (The University of Melbourne), Paul Norbury (The University of Melbourne), Norman Do (Monash University), Neil Hoffman (Oklahoma State University)


  • Deadline 6 October, 2016 (session 1)
  • Only one registration is required. Please add all events associated with this program (see links below) to the Event Cart before checkout
  • Participation is by invitation only


This workshop will provide introductory lectures that focus on the four main themes of the program. The lectures will be particularly suitable for graduate students and early career researchers.


  • Katrin Wendland (Universität Freiburg): Conformal field theory for mathematicians
  • Roland van der Veen (Universiteit Leiden): Quantum invariants
  • Jessica Purcell (Monash University): Hyperbolic knot theory
  • Norman Do (Monash University): Topological recursion and quantum curves
  • Benjamin Burton (The University of Queensland): Computational 3-manifold topology
