Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow: Progress and Problems

Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow: Progress and Problems

4--5 January 2018

The aim of the workshop is to bring together key players in Lagrangian mean curvature flow with young researchers to discuss recent progress and new ideas, develop collaborations and make decisive progress towards solving major open conjectures in the field.

Talks will take place at University College London. The workshop will start in the morning on Thursday 4 January and finish by the evening of Friday 5 January.
