The workshop on "Gromov-Witten theory, Gauge Theory and Dualities" is one of the major events hosted by the 2015 MSI special year on "Geometry and Physics". The workshop will begin on January 6, 2016 in Canberra with a introductory workshop followed by an international conference at the ANU Kioloa campus from January 10, 2016. The introductory workshop aims to familiarise postgraduate students and young researchers to some of the main mathematical techniques for the study of the moduli spaces from gauge theory and Gromov-Witten theory. The purpose of the conference is to bring together leading international researchers in the areas of geometry and physics, with a main focus on the geometry and topology of moduli spaces arising from gauge theory and Gromov-Witten invariants, mirror symmetry and other dualities.
