Description
Moduli b
This workshop will be focused on presenting the latest developments in moduli theory, including (but not restricted to) recent advances in compactifications of moduli spaces of higher dimensional varieties, the birational geometry of moduli spaces, abstract methods including stacks, stability criteria, and applications in other disciplines.
