Winter School on Algebraic Geometry


KIAS Winter School on Algebraic Geometry
    - Algebraic surfaces and their compact moduli

March 2-5, 2010, KIAS

Study on algebraic surfaces is still one of the most vibrant and active areas of research where algebraic geometry, differential geometry, and topology can interact. The aim of the school is to introduce basics and developments on algebraic surfaces and their compact moduli spaces to the advanced graduate students and researchers who are working on algebraic geometry. Two mini-courses will be delivered by F. Catanese and S. Kovács. In addition, there will be exercise sessions and complementary seminar talks.

The school is organized by KIAS in collaboration with the WCU program at Sogang University.

Invited speakers for minicourses:
Fabrizio Catanese (Univ. of Bayreuth)
    Surfaces of general type: some construction technique and investigation of moduli spaces
Sándor Kovács (Univ. of Washington)
    Degenerations of smooth canonically polarized surfaces: towards a compact moduli space
