Abstract: We prove the functoriality for a proper push-forward of the characteristic cycles of constructible complexes by morphisms of smooth projective schemes over a perfect field, under the assumption that the direct image of the singular support has the dimension at most that of the target of the morphism. The functoriality is deduced from a conductor formula which is a special case for morphisms to curves. The conductor formula in the constant coefficient case gives the geometric case of a formula conjectured by Bloch.
