Postponed until 2021: Due to the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus crisis, the workshop will be postponed by one year. The precise dates will be announced in due course.


Twistor theory has had a widespread impact in mathematics and physics since its origin about 50 years ago. In this interdisciplinary workshop, to take place in Cambridge, we will revisit its main achievements, and will assess the most promising current directions. 

The list of speakers includes: Nathan Berkovits (Sao Paulo), Zvi Bern (UCLA), Eduardo Casali (Davis), Mike Eastwood (Adelaide), Yvonne Geyer (Bangkok), Claude LeBrun (Stony Brook), Jerzy Lewandowski (Warsaw), Roger Penrose (Oxford), Prim Plansangkate (Hat Yai), Dave Skinner (Cambridge), George Sparling (Pittsburgh), Paul Tod (Oxford), Jaroslav Trnka (Davis), and Anastasia Volovich (Brown). This is a preliminary list, with most of the speakers confirmed, and a few still to confirm. 


Lionel Mason has been at the forefront of almost all applications of twistor theory, both in mathematics and in physics. This workshop will be an opportunity to celebrate his outstanding contributions, on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
