Conformal symplectic structures, contact topology, and foliations

March 15 to March 19, 2021

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Melanie Bertelson, Yakov Eliashberg, Gael Meigniez, and Emmy Murphy

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to exploration of the recently discovered connections between conformal symplectic structures, contact topology and the theory of codimension one foliations. The workshop will review the recent progress related to the topic and stimulate further research on the various new questions by bringing together experts in foliation theory, contact and symplectic topology. The recent existence results for conformal structures and exact leafwise conformal symplectic structures, as well as on deformation of leafwise conformal foliations into contact structures raise many interesting questions.

Here are sample topics which will be discussed:
