Tropical Geometry, Valladolid (Spain)
May 25 - May 29
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.
– 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.
