About the workshop

This workshop will cover various topics in modern algebraic geometry. Some of the themes will include: curves on K3 surfaces, Gromov-Witten theory, vector bundles on curves and surfaces, Hilbert schemes and moduli spaces of sheaves on K3 surfaces, Calabi-Yau and other threefolds, derived categories, zeta functions and modular forms, and the interaction of Geometric Invariant Theory with the Minimal Model Program.

This workshop will bring together experts working on these topics and in related areas. Support for the conference is provided by the National Science Foundation, award DMS-1547117.


Location

The meeting will be held at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in the Department of Mathematics, located in Phillips Hall. Registration and coffee breaks will take place in Phillips 265 and 330, and lectures will take place in Phillips 265 and 332. Click here for a campus map: Phillips Hall is on East Cameron Ave.
