CIRM will be hosting a workshop on Higher Dimensional Algebraic Geometry and Characteristic p September 12-16, 2016.

Over the past two years, there has been substantial and rapid progress in the understanding of higher dimensional algebraic varieties in characteristic p > 0, specifically from the point of view of the minimal model program. Techniques first developed in commutative algebra and representation theory in the 1980s have begun to be employed extensively. Further development and dissemination of these methods is still needed. On the other hand, it has become clear that in order for further progress to be made, connections with arithmetic aspects of varieties in characteristic p > 0 must be explored and addressed. Additionally, recent progress on applications of Berkovich spaces to birational algebraic geometry suggests another direction in which we will try to forge connections. This workshop will bring together researchers from distinct several areas within algebraic geometry and and also arithmetic geometry with the goal of disseminating recent techniques and forging new connections in research.
