Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces January 22, 2019 to May 24, 2019
Organizers Antonella Grassi (University of Pennsylvania), LEAD Christopher Hacon (University of Utah), Sándor Kovács (University of Washington), Mircea Mustaţă (University of Michigan), Martin Olsson (University of California, Berkeley)
Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces are two important areas of Algebraic Geometry that have recently witnessed a flurry of activity and substantial progress on many fundamental open questions. In this program we aim to  bring together key researchers in these and related areas to highlight the recent exciting progress and to explore future avenues of research.
This program will focus on the following themes: Geometry and Derived Categories, Birational Algebraic Geometry, Moduli Spaces of Stable Varieties, Geometry in Characteristic p>0, and Applications of Algebraic Geometry: Elliptic Fibrations of Calabi-Yau Varieties in Geometry, Arithmetic and the Physics of String Theory
