A conference at IESC Cargèse, April 15-20th, 2018.
16-20 Apr 2018 Cargèse (France)


This conference aims at gathering researchers with different backgrounds to discuss the central question of 3-manifold invariants. In addition to specialized talks in each of the three main thematics and submitted talks, discussion sessions will be organize within the conference center.


• Heegaard-Floer homologies and symplectic geometry: Heegaard-Floer homologies, Reshetikhin-Turaev-type approaches, geometric versions of Khovanov homology;

• Algebraic categorification: Khovanov homology and categorified quantum groups, 4-dimensional TQFT and links with physics, super homologies, categorification at roots of unity;

• TQFT and non semi-simple invariants: logarithmic quantum invariants and modified traces, conformal fields theory.
