Nonabelian Gauged Liear Sigma Model (GLSM) studys the two dimensional quantum field theory for such targets as flag varieities and quiver varieties. The same targets provide a rich sources of examples for geometric representation theory. Via the recent works of Maulik-Okounkov, there is a strong indication that two areas may be related. The workshop aims to bring top experts from mathematics and physics together to exam these possible connections.
