Visions in mathematics: from Grothendieck to the present day

The Grothendieck Institute is hosting a conference for the general public on 14 June 2023 at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris. This meeting, entitled “Visions in mathematics: from Grothendieck to the present day“, will explore, with talks by Mateo Carmona, Alain Connes, Stéphane Dugowson, Johanna Grothendieck, Laurent Lafforgue and myself, the issues raised by the person and visionary work of A.
