Unexpected and Asymptotic Properties of Algebraic Varieties (BrianFest) May 15th, 2020

There will be a conference “Unexpected and Asymptotic Properties of Algebraic Varieties.” (aka BrianFest) which will focus on interpolation problems in algebraic geometry and asymptotic invariants of homogeneous ideals. The conference will also celebrate Brian Harbourne’s work in this area as he celebrates his 65th birthday.

The conference will take place May 15-17, 2020 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The following people have already agreed to speak at the conference:

  • Cristiano Bocci (University of Siena)
  • Eloísa Grifo (University of California Riverside)
  • Juan Migliore (University of Notre Dame)
  • Uwe Nagel (University of Kentucky)
  • Tomasz Szemberg (Pedagogical Institute of Cracow)

More information can be found at the web page for the conference.

A second announcement with more details will appear in the new year.

Purity, Approximation Theory and Spectra, Cetraro, Italy May 18th, 2020

There will be a workshop on “Purity, Approximation Theory and Spectra” at Grand Hotel San Michele in Cetraro, Italy, 18-22 May 2020.

Purity and approximation theory influence a wide range of areas in mathematics including model theory of modules, silting and tilting theory, cotorsion pairs and abelian model structures and many more. Moreover, related classification problems in abelian and triangulated categories are strongly connected with spaces such as Ziegler spectra and prime spectra. We aim to bring together experts and young researchers with an interest in these topics to share their different viewpoints and approaches.

The workshop will include five mini lecture series introducing a range of fundamental topics, and contributed talks. There will also be opportunities for PhD students to present short talks introducing their research topics. Funding is available for a limited number of PhD students.

Lecture series speakers:

  • Sergio Estrada, University of Murcia
  • Lorna Gregory, University of Campania
  • Ivo Herzog, Ohio State University
  • Henning Krause, University of Bielefeld
  • Jan Saroch, Charles University, Prague

Tropical Geometry, Valladolid (Spain) May 25th, 2020

International school on Tropical Geometry

This school is organized by the IMUVA-Mathematics Research Institute of the University of Valladolid (Spain) in May, 25th-29th, 2020. The main objective of is to offer to future and young researchers of distinct branches of mathematics a series of courses at doctorate level on a new field connected to many areas. There will be an introductory course with minimal prerequisites and two courses on recent applications in different areas. The three courses are aimed to be as self-contained as possible in order to make the school attractive to a wide and diverse audience.

The target audience is master’s students, PhD students and postdocs from all areas of mathematics. Senior researchers interested in learning on this new topic are also welcome. The school is based on three courses organized in an exercise-based format (1 hour of lecture + 40 minutes of exercises for each session). We will also give the opportunity to young researchers to present their own work either through a series of short communications or a poster session.

The speakers, TAs and topics of the three courses are:

– Introduction to tropical geometry
Lecturer: Diane Maclagan (University of Warwick, UK)
TAs: Sara Lamboglia (Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität, Germany) and Marta Panizzut (TU Berlin, Germany)

– Introduction to tropical ideals
Lecturer: Felipe Rincón (Queen Mary University of London, UK)
TAs: Sara Lamboglia and Marta Panizzut

– Tropical approach to singular points and its connections to Nagata’s conjecture and linear codes
Lecturer/TA: Nikita Kalinin (National Research University Higher School of Economics in St. Petersburg and University of St. Petersburg, Russia)

There will be grants covering accommodation for some of the young participants (master and PhD students, postdocs). The number of grants will depend on the financial support that we get, we will try to give as many grants as we can. Candidates will be selected under the supervision of the School’s Scientific Committee and young women will be given priority. Registration and application for a grant will be available soon.

Important dates:
– Submission deadline and grant application: 13th of March, 2020.
– Notification of acceptance on contributions and grants: 22th of March, 2020.
– Early registration until: 31th of March, 2020.

Organizers: Philippe Gimenez and Diego Ruano (IMUVA, Valladolid).
