Algebraic Geometry: Old and New
Date: 26 - 30 September 2016
Location: Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
Event type: CRC Workshop
Organisers: Alessio Corti (Imperial), János Kollár (Princeton), Miles Reid (Warwick), and Nick Shepherd-Barron (KCL)
The workshop focuses on related old topics in algebraic geometry that are transformed by a recent new point of view, and new topics that have applications to old problems. Some of the themes that will feature are: Fano manifolds, special metrics and moduli; stable objects in derived categories; applications of mirror symmetry.
The workshop will pause on Wednesday, 28 September for the Clay Research Conference, at which János Kollár will give a plenary talk on Celestial surfaces and quadratic forms.
Speakers: Christian Boehning (Warwick), Tom Coates (Imperial), Kento Fujita (Kyoto), Mark Gross (Cambridge), Dominic Joyce (Oxford), Anne-Sophie Kaloghiros (Brunel), Conan Leung (CUHK), Yuchen Liu (Princeton), Eduard Looijenga (Utrecht and Tsinghua), Emanuele Macri (Northeastern), Yuji Odaka (Kyoto), Bernd Siebert (Hamburg), Cristiano Spotti (Aarhus), Jacopo Stoppa (SISSA Trieste), Song Sun (Stony Brook), Alessandro Verra (Roma 3), Xiaowei Wang (Rutgers), Jaroslaw Wisniewski (Warsaw)
