There is a deep connection between the topological defects that arise in diverse models of mathematical physics and recent generalisations of symmetry. In this short meeting we want to bring together researches working with higher categorical structures and those whose research involves defects and generalised symmetries in quantum field theories or lattice models, in order to present new results and explore new connections.
There will be talks by invited speakers and also talks by participants. There will also be an opportunity to display posters during coffee breaks and the lunch break. If you are interested in either of these options, please contact one of the organisers by 12th of May.
There are funds available to support UK-based Research students and those with caring responsibilities. If you would like to be considered for support, please email one of the organisers.
