Algebra and Geometry and Topology of Singularities. On the occasion of the 60th birthday of I.Luengo. Singuarity month at ICMAT

Sunday, September 8, 2013 - 6:00pm to Friday, September 13, 2013 - 5:59pm

From 9th to 27th September there will be a three weeks activity in Algebraic Geometry and Singularity Theory in Madrid, in honour of the 60th birthday of I. Luengo Velasco. In the first week a Conference will take place in the Conference Centre "La Cristalera" in Miraflores de la Sierra" a beautiful location in the mountais nearby Madrid. Its aim is to update the audience in the latest developments of Singuarity theory and neigbouring areas from Algebraic Geometry. In the last two weeks a Graduate School will take place at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (ICMAT). Its aim is to present at a level comprehensible for graduate students and postdocs new techniques and aspects of Singularity Theory, and new connections with neighbouring areas as well. The teaches of the school will be N. A'Campo, L. Gottsche, J. Nicaise and D. van Straten, and topics like Deformation Theory, Berkovich Spaces, Enumerative Geometry and Vanishing Cycles in connection with Symplectic Geometry will be covered.
