Positive Characteristic Algebraic Geometry Workshop
Month: March 2014
Date: March 21--23
Name: Positive Characteristic Algebraic Geometry Workshop
Location: University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), Chicago, Illinois.
This workshop, aimed at graduate students and young postdocs, will expose participants to the use of Frobenius in the study of local singularities and global higher dimensional geometry in positive characteristic. We hope to incorporate a mix of introductory talks and problem sessions in groups, and will focus on presenting a number of open questions with sufficient background to be worked on both during and after the workshop.
The funding for this workshop comes from a National Science Foundation Research Training Grant (DMS 1246844). Limited funding for travel and lodging is available, to apply, simply indicate that funding is needed when submitting the registration form on this website.
For consideration for funding is February 1, 2014. Women and minorities and members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
