Introductory Workshop: Derived Algebraic Geometry and Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces January 31, 2019 - February 08, 2019
Registration Deadline: February 15, 2019 almost 2 years from now
To apply for Funding you must register by: November 11, 2018 over 1 year from now
Parent Program: Derived Algebraic Geometry
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium, Atrium
Organizers Julie Bergner (University of Virginia), Bhargav Bhatt (University of Michigan), Christopher Hacon (University of Utah), LEAD Mircea Mustaţă (University of Michigan), Gabriele Vezzosi (Università di Firenze)
Description

The workshop will survey several areas of algebraic geometry, providing an introduction to the two main programs hosted by MSRI in Spring 2019. It will consist of 6 expository mini-courses and 8 separate lectures, each given by top experts in the field. 

The focus of the workshop will be the recent progress in derived algebraic geometry, birational geometry and moduli spaces. The lectures will be aimed at a wide audience including advanced graduate students and postdocs with a background in algebraic geometry.
