WELCOME!

The emphasis of the conference will be on geometry. The lectures will explain the connections between the modern theory of finite dimensional integrable systems and other branches of mathematics and mathematical physics, their role in interactions between mathematics and physics, as well as their applications in geometry and physics.

Financial support

Thanks to the generous support of the DFG Research Training Group “Quantum and Gravitational Fields” there will be no conference fee and we are able to provide financial support for most speakers (accommodation), and, if resources allow, graduate students and postdocs working in the field of finite dimensional integrable systems.
