Spitalfields Geometry Day, 8th July 1997

A one-day meeting to celebrate the award by the University of Edinburgh of an honorary degree to Dusa McDuff. This is part of the ICMS programme "Complex Methods in Differential geometry" and will be a "Spitalfields day" under the LMS scheme. We are grateful to the LMS for this support.

10:30 - 11:00 COFFEE
11:00 - 12:00 N.J. Hitchin (Cambridge)
The geometry of special Lagrangian submanifolds
12:15 - 1:15 P. Gauduchon (Paris)
Explicit hyperkähler metrics on some class of coadjoint orbits of complex semi-simple Lie groups
1:15 - 2:30 LUNCH
2:30 - 3:30 S.K. Donaldson (Oxford)
Kähler geometry and symplectic geometry
3:30 - 4:00 COFFEE
4:00 - 5:00 D. McDuff (Stony Brook)
Recent advances in symplectic topology
5:30 - 7:00 RECEPTION (Wine and cheese)

The meeting will take place at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences, 14 India Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6EZ. Space is limited, and so the meeting is open to registered particpants only. Registration is free, and will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis up to the maximum capacity. Registration includes Coffee, Lunch and the Reception.
