Recent AMS special Sessions
Together with Sasha Voronov, we organized Special Session on Topology and Physics at the AMS meeting at the Minnesota Fall 2016 meeting.

With Emil Prodan and Birgit Kaufmann, we organized  Special Session on Topological Mathematical Physics
at the Bloomington, Spring 2017 meeting.

Trimester Program on Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics.

From Jan-Mar 2016, I co-organized the  Program on Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics at the Max-Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn. This also comprised several conferences:
