2:00 Alessio Corti (Imperial): Higher dimensional flips
3:30 Cristina Lopez (Salamanca): FourierMukai transforms for singular schemes
5:00 Tom Coates (Imperial), (1): the quantum orbifold cohomology of weighted projective spaces
6:00 Party/Dinner

This is an informal activity to introduce new graduate students to open problems in Algebraic Geometry. Another purpose of the meeting is to plan for next year's Algebraic Geometry symposium WAG0708 (details to be announced shortly). I expect Gavin Brown (Kent), Tom Coates (Imperial), Alessio Corti (Imperial), Ali Craw (Glasgow), Cristina Lopez (Salamanca), Balazs Szendroi (Oxford) for some of the time.
Anyone welcome; let me know if you want accommodation or need travel expenses (no guarantees). Please email mrc@maths.warwick.ac.uk so that we can estimate the numbers involved.
