- algebraic-geometric and complex-analytic-geometric aspects of quantization
- geometric quantization and moduli space problems
- asymptotic geometric analysis
- infinite-dimensional geometry
- relations with modern theoretical physics.
This school is an activity in the frame of the International Research Training Group (IRTG) Geometry and Analysis of Symmetries and the GEOQUANT sommer schools. It is jointly organized by the Mathematics Institutes of the Universities Luxembourg , Metz , and Paderborn , in collaboration with the Steklov Mathematical Institute, Moscow, Russia and the Mathematical Institute of the University of Nagoya, Japan.
The topics are directions of ongoing intensive mathematical research. Participants of the school might be interested to attend the related international conference GEOQUANT (Geometry and Quantization), which will take place immediately after the school from September 7 to 11, 2009, also in Luxembourg.

Note that Monday August 31, 2009 is the first day of the school and Saturday September 5, 2009 the last day. Hence count August 30 as arrival day and September 6, as departure day, or as day between the school and conference.
A certain number of fellowships for participants covering local costs will be available. In duly justified cases some contributions towards the travel expenses might be possible.
In case you apply for a fellowship you are asked to register as usual but supply via email to firstname.lastname@example.org in addition the following supporting information:
- a short CV (roughly 1 page)
- a statement (roughly 1/2 page) explaining what is your relation with the subjects of the conference
- if possible, 1 or 2 names of referees
- an estimate how much you could obtain from other sources.
We expect to be able to decide on the fellowships the latest in May.
