This conference is a Satellite Conference for the International Congress of Mathematicians ICM-2022 that will be held July 6–14 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
This Congress is one of the oldest and most significant worldwide meetings of mathematicians.
We recommend exploring the ICM Program, as well as many of its Satellite Conferences

General Information

This conference is the eighth bi-annual Workshop on Combinatorics of Moduli Spaces, Cluster Algebras and Topological Recursion running consecutively from 2008; the last, seventh workshop was performed in the online mode in 31.05-04.06 2021. This series of meetings is devoted to studies in combinatorial method applications in geometry and mathematical physics; two main topics shaping the workshop agenda are cluster algebras and topological recursion and their interactions within the mirror symmetry framework, within the spectral curve approach to Landau-Ginzburg potentials, and within the cohomological field theory framework in application to knot theory and knot invariants. We also address a modern development of cluster structures in Lie algebras, including classical and quantum algebras of monodromies of Fuchsian systems, a very recently appeared geometrical recursion method and other fascinating topics related to cluster algebras and topological recursion, which without a shadow of doubts will emerge in two years remaining before ICM 2022.

Thirty three keynote speakers include world experts in the field, Bertrand Eynard (France), Vladimir Fock (France), Ezra Getzler (USA), John Harnad (Canada), Rei Inoue (Japan), Rinat Kashaev (Switzerland), Rinat Kedem (USA), Bernhard Keller (France), Chiu-Chu Melissa Liu (USA), Motohico Mulase (USA), Tomoki Nakanishi (Japan), Paul Norbury (Australia), Andrei Okounkov (USA and Russia), Michael Shapiro (USA), Leon Takhtajan (USA), Lauren Williams (USA), Peter Zograf (Russia), Anton Zorich (France and Russia) and others, and younger specialists actively working in the field: Gaetan Borot (Germany), Andrea Brini (UK), Alexander Buryak (Russia), Norman Do (Australia), Olivia Dumitrescu (USA), Anna Felikson (UK), Pavlo Gavrylenko (Russia), Piotr Sulkowski (Poland), Ran Tessler (Islael), just to name few. The organizers expect that more than 140 researchers and students from at least 17 countries of the world will participate in the meeting.

Besides regular lectures the organizers are planning to record short popular lectures by principal participants of the conference to be uploaded afterwards to a free-access internet site together with videos of conference lectures.

Traditionally two out of ten sessions of the workshop are reserved for talks of younger participants: postdocs and young faculties. Among 40 scheduled talks at least 10 will be given by young, still non-tenured, researchers and half of the keynote speakers are younger than 45. Whereas the organizers will provide and cover accommodation for all non-Muscovite participants of the workshop, they will arrange travel support for part of invited speakers, but most importantly for younger participants with preference to those from underrepresented groups. These workshops proved to be breeding grounds for the next generation of researchers: nearly 40% of prospective participants are graduate students and postdocs primarily from NRU HSE and Skoltech, but also from many countries all over the globe. The conference venues will be accessible to every person worldwide via an open-domain broadcasting. The organizers also traditionally put considerable efforts in supporting the gender balance of participants: eight out of thirty three keynote speakers and at least 1/5 of participants are women.

Please note that all participants of the ICM 2022, including those who plan to participate in satellite events, must make a registration on the Congress website Obtaining the right to visa-free entry in the period from 01.03.2022 to 01.09.2022 to the territory of Russian Federation is granted only to registered participants of the Congress, including those who plan to participate in satellite events.

Financial support. The conference is supported by the ICM 2022, the Simons Foundation and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation (the grant to the Steklov International Mathematical Center, agreement no. 075-15-2019-1614), Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, and the grant of International Laboratory of Cluster Geometry, Faculty of Mathematics, HSE University
