Workshop on "Minimal surfaces in symmetric spaces and Labourie's conjecture"

## August 22nd to August 27th 2022 - l'Escandille, Autrans, France.

**Organizers:** Beatrice Pozzetti, Andrea Seppi, and Jérémy Toulisse.

This workshop is intended for young researchers.

The goal is to study Labourie's conjecture which gives a link between representations of surfaces groups and equivariant minimal surfaces in symmetric spaces.

Each speaker will give a 2.5 hour lecture on a topic that will be assigned before the workshop. This format is based on the Log Cabin workshops of the GEAR network.
