The Indo-European Collaboration on Moduli Spaces (MODULI) jointly with the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy and the NSF Network GEAR is organizing an activity on Geometry and Physics of Moduli Spaces to be held at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore during 20 - 31 March, 2017. We also expect that the activity would receive funding from the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM).

The focus of the first week (March 20-24) will be on Higgs bundles and Character Varieties, while in the second week (March 27-31) the topic will be Geometry and String Theory. The program for both weeks will include a mix of minicourses and research talks.

Deadline: January 2, 2017.

We will be able to provide accommodation and take care of all the local expenses of the selected participants. Also, we expect that we would have some limited funds to reimburse travel expenses.
