**Abstract:** I am proposing a RAP on the interaction between geometry and supersymmetric quantum field theories. While the exact choice of topics will be participant-dependent, the initial proposal includes the physics of super Yang-Mills, dimensional reduction, and topological twisting, with geometric applications such as Higgs bundles, geometric Langlands, and geometric engineering. Participation is sought from faculty, postdocs, and grad students in the math and physics departments. If you are interested in participating in the RAP but cannot attend the organizational meeting, please let me know.
