The study of holomorphic symplectic varieties and the related topic of certain moduli spaces are vibrant areas of research. Although they are studied all over the world, particularly many researchers working on these topics are situated in Europe and Japan. The Japanese-European Symposium on Symplectic Varieties and Moduli Spaces" has the goal to intensify the scientific exchange between researchers in these fields despite of the geographical distance. It is mainly aimed at young researchers, starting from last year PhD students.
After the first Japanese-European Symposium on Symplectic Varieties and Moduli Spaces was held in Kyoto in October 2015 with great success, the second edition will take place in Levico Terme from the 17th of September to the 23rd. The future plan is to run this conference every year for some time, once in Europe and once in Japan.
The conference is meant to encourage interactions between participants, so the schedule will leave time for discussions. There should be roughly 20 speakers, and most participants will also be speakers, presenting their area of expertise. Additionally there will be two senior speakers giving several connected lectures.
