European Algebraic Geometry Conference
Warwick, Mon 15th - Sat 20th Jul 1996

EC TMR grant European Algebraic Geometry Conference, contract ERBFMMACT 950029 British EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Council) EC HCM project AGE (Algebraic Geometry in Europe), contract ERBCHRXCT 940557

The week Mon 22nd July -- Sat 27th July 1996 following the EuroConference will function as a concluding workshop

Scientific committee:

A. Beauville (Paris), F. Catanese (Pisa), N. Hitchin (Cambridge), K. Hulek (Hannover), J.D.S. Jones (Warwick), C. Peters (Grenoble), M. Reid (Warwick)

The conference is the climax of the year-long Warwick algebraic geometry symposium 1995-96, funded mainly by the British EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council). A number of visitors will be at Warwick throughout June and July 1996, and regular seminars will be held. The week following the EuroConference will function as a concluding workshop.


Key to main topics:

  • SW: Seiberg-Witten and geometry of 4-manifolds
  • MS: Mirror symmetry
  • Mg: Moduli space of curves
  • Pd: Algebraic geometry and physical dualities
