There will be a Stony Brook mini-school in geometry, on the topic of derived categories and their applications to birational geometry, taking place on Monday, April 6. Aimed at postdocs and advanced graduate students, it is intended to serve as an introduction to some of the topics to be discussed at the workshop on New Techniques in Birational Geometry that will take place at Stony Brook starting on April 7.
Interested postdocs or graduate students can find information at the mini-school website.
Stony Brook will be able to cover lunch and modest travel expenses for registered participants (the registration deadline is March 27). It would be helpful administratively if participants from a given institution could pool their expenses, so that the organizers don’t need to fill out a large number of separate reimbursement requests.
