Flyer: You can find our flyer here!

Description: This year’s topic is the symplectic geometry of contangent bundles and the nearby Lagrangian conjecture. For mathematical info, click here!

Format: Kylerec is a student-led and student-run workshop. We will live in a communal setting, sharing cooking and cleaning responsibilities. Talks will be given by participants, with guidance from our mentors. Our vision is to curate a healthy, relaxed and creative atmosphere where we can learn mathematics together and make human connections in the process. There are no spectators, only participants!

Mentors: Roberta Guadagni, Thomas Kragh, Kyler Siegel, Jingyu Zhao

Organizing committee: Catherine Cannizzo, Orsola Capovilla-Searle, Cédric De Groote, Tim Large, Kevin Sackel

Funding: NSF funding is pending.
