2007–2008 Warwick EPSRC Symposium on Algebraic Geometry

WAG 07–08

Main organisers: Miles Reid, Alessio Corti (Imperial)

Co-organisers: Gavin Brown (Kent), Gavril Farkas (Austin Texas and Humboldt U Berlin), Frank Schreyer (Saarbruecken), Samir Siksek (Warwick), Katrin Wendland (Augsburg) and many others

There have been 3 previous Warwick EPSRC symposia devoted to algebraic geometry, in 1970-71 (led by David Mumford) and in 1982-83 and 1995-96 (led by Miles Reid). WAG07-08 also follows the Isaac Newton Institute program HDG02.
