Introductory School on Algebraic Geometry

18- 21 September 2013

The aim is to provide a first introduction to some of the current trends in algebraic geometry, esp. centring on appropriate problem areas for beginning PhD students.

Some funding may be available, particularly for UK based graduate students.
