This workshop is focused on holomorphic curve techniques in low-dimensional topology and symplectic and contact geometry. It is funded in part by an NSF Focused Research Grants DMS-0244663 FRG: Holomorphic Curves in Low Dimensional Topology and DMS-0603355 SM: geometry and topology of moduli spaces and the NSF grant DMS-0616617 Workshop: "Algebraic structures in Symplectic Field Theory". Additional support comes from the Stanford University Mathematics Research Center and the American Institute of Mathematics.
