Gone Fishing: March 16-19, 2023

An illustration of a man in a rowboat fishing Welcome to the offical website for the 9th annual Gone Fishing conference in North America, for the presentation and discussion of new ideas and results in Poisson geometry. The event will take place on March 16-19 2023 on the campus of Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts.

The theme of this meeting is “Poisson geometry and its derived, shifted, and higher variants” and we hope to stimulate interaction between Poisson geometry, derived symplectic geometry and related fields. We expect that three of the special 50 min lectures will have a focus on the theme of the meeting. Shorter (25 min) talks about Poisson geometry broadly speaking are welcome. Those participants interested in presenting such a talk will indicate this upon registration. We especially encourage talks by members of underrepresented groups and early career mathematicians.

NSF Support

An NSF conference grant will allow us to cover or partially cover travel and local expenses of some participants. Priority is given to graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and those with no other travel funds available. You can request support while registering (below), but can also send an email message to gonefishingmeetings@gmail.com.
