University of Saskatchewan


This weekend conference will bring together algebraic geometers of Western Canada in order to build and strengthen collaborations, disseminate research, and contribute to the training of students and postdoctoral fellows. Talks will be given by 8 respected algebraic geometers. Over half of the speakers will be from the region in order to paint a representative picture of the research being done in Western Canada. The remaining speakers will be renowned external lecturers, serving to keep the Western Canadian algebraic geometry community apprised of recent developments. There will also be a poster session for students and postdoctoral fellows to present their work.
