Holomorphic curves in contact geometry

This workshop This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to the
development of holomorphic curve techniques in contact geometry and
topology. The advent of holomorphic curve techniques in contact
topology, as exemplified in Symplectic Field Theory (SFT), and
asymptotically holomorphic curve techniques, in the spirit of
Donaldson, has allowed one to use a diverse set of geometric,
analytic and topological tools when studying contact structures.
The goal of this workshop is to expose, develop and apply these tools.
