Holder of the AXA-IHÉS Chair of Mathematics

Certainly, geometry in the 21st century with physical application, will involve the study of new kinds of objects with categorical structures playing a primordial role.
Maxim Kontsevich has been a force of nature in creating these new categorical structures in the last 20 years.
The goal of this conference is to celebrate his contributions to Mathematics and Physics.
This meeting­ will contribute to disseminate results on­ a variety of subjects and will ­serve a perfect opportunity for young scientists to get involved in top research. ­
