Conferencence and Workshops



Conference: Generalizations of A1-Homotopy Invariance in Algebraic Geometry and Homotopy Theory

Location/Dates: Haus Kranich-Usedom, April 3, 2016 (arrival) to April 8, 2016 (departure).

Organizers: Jose Burgos, Hélène Esnault, Moritz Kerz, Jürg Kramer


We plan to have an exchange on A1-invariance in topics ranging from constructions of non-A1-invariant motives and ramification in arithmetic geometry, as well as their relation with Arakelov geometry.


Conference: Motivic homotopy groups of spheres

Location/Dates: University of Duisberg-Essen in Essen, June 21-25, 2016.

Organizers: Aravind Asok, Marc Levine, Oliver Röndigs

Topic: motivic homotopy theory


Workshop: Differential forms in algebraic geometry

Location/Dates: Universität Freiburg, Sept. 19-23 2016.

Organizers: Manuel Blickle, Annette Huber, Stefan Kebekus, Shane Kelly

Topic:The aim of the workshop is to bring experts from the field of motive, homotopy theory and derived algebraic geometry together with specialists in bi- rational geometriy and algebraic geometry in characteristic p. The different groups will be able to learn about each other’s problems and methods.
