About the Oporto Meetings
The XXth Oporto Meeting on Geometry, Topology and Physics will take place in Oporto, Portugal, from July 19th to 22nd, 2012 (Thursday to Sunday). The aim of the Oporto Meetings is to bring together mathematicians and physicists interested in the inter-relation between geometry, topology and physics and to provide them with a pleasant and informal environment for scientific interchange. The web pages of previous meetings can be found at: OM.
As in previous years, the meeting is focussed on the short
given by the main speakers, which are
supplemented by seminars by other participants. The talks are at the
advanced graduate or postdoctoral level, and should be of interest to
all researchers wishing to learn about recent developments in the
overlap between geometry, topology and physics.
The main topic of our XXth edition will be
Noncommutative Geometry and Conformal Field TheoryInvited main speakers:
"20 selected towns were competing for the prestigious title of Best European Destination 2012. After a three weeks' period of online voting Porto is elected the Best European Destination 2012 and wins the title ahead of 19 big european cities."
