Kylerec 2018

Topic: Cotangent bundles and the nearby Lagrangian conjecture

Date: May 25 – 31, 2018.

KYLEREC 2018 is now over. All notes can be found by visiting this page!

Location: The Leavenworth Lodge, Washington State, USA

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!

Pre-workshops: Leading up to the main workshop, two smaller pre-workshops were organized. There was one held at Stanford University on May 5, and another will be held at Columbia University on May 12. Notes from both are available.

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

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

Funding: We are grateful to the NSF for their support.

Applications: Applications are now closed.

Contact: You are welcome to ask any questions by sending an email to
