Topic: We introduce manifolds of special holonomy, including parallel spinors and calibrated submanifolds. There will be a focus on G2 manifolds, including obstructions to and invariants of torsion-free G2 structures, and supersymmetric compactifications of supergravity.

Funding: As a general rule, you are supposed to arrive with your own funding but there are also some limited funds available. Let us know if you need funding by sending an email to  gk1821-admin@math.uni-freiburg.de  with the following information:

- name and affiliation;
- a short resume explaining your research interests and reason for funding request;
- your estimated travel costs
- a short support letter from your advisor or mentor

The deadline for funding request is Friday 19th July 2019

The deadline for registration is Friday 6th September 2019

To Enroll: For organisational reasons, all participants should register by sending

an email to  gk1821-admin@math.uni-freiburg.de, specifying name, current status

and affiliation.


If you have received funding from us, then we will also book a hotel for you. Otherwise, you have to book your own hotel room.

We have arranged special pricing at several hotels in the city center near the Mathematical Institute. Please contact the hotel directly to make your reservation. To obtain the special price, please make a reference to the summer school of the Mathematical Institute. These deals are valid on an availability basis and only for reservations made up to the mentioned deadlines respectively.
