The IHES 2020 Summer School on "Motivic, Equivariant and Non-commutative Homotopy Theory" will be held at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES) from 6 to 17 July 2020. IHES is located in Bures-sur-Yvette, south of Paris (40 minutes by train from Paris).

This school is open to everybody but intended primarily for young participants, including PhD students and postdoctoral fellows.

The IHES 2020 Summer School will focus on topics in motivic and equivariant homotopy theory, and non-commutative geometry.

These three subjects are currently experiencing a phase of intense growth and development:

  • long-standing central conjectures have been solved;
  • existing theories are being perfected;
  • many new foundational developments are being made on this basis.

It's expected that these developments will spur many further advances and interactions in the near future.

The lecture series and research talks at the IHES Summer School will focus on presenting the latest developments in topics related to categories of motives, calculational and foundational aspects of motivic and equivariant homotopy theory, and the generalisations of these tools and techniques in the setting of non-commutative geometry.


So far the following people have agreed to give a mini-course:

  • Clark Barwick (University of Edinburgh)
  • Jean Fasel (University Joseph Fourier - Grenoble),
  • Daniel Isaksen (Wayne State University),
  • Dmitry Kaledin (Steklov Mathematical Institute),
  • Marc Levine (Universität Duisburg-Essen),
  • Ivan Panin (St. Petersburg Department of Mathematics),
  • Goncalo Tabuada (MIT Department of Mathematics / University of Warwick).

This is an IHES Summer School organised in partnership with the Research Council of Norway, the Fondation Mathématique Jacques Hadamard and the ANR, and the support of the Société Générale and the ERC.

The IHES hopes to be able to provide partial financial support to cover housing for most accepted graduate students and postdocs. Some limited amount of additional funds will be available for special circumstances.

Registration for this event is currently open.
