There will be three pretalks, exclusively for graduate students, with a focus on birational geometry.
AGNES is a new series of weekend workshops in algebraic
geometry. One of our goals is to introduce graduate students to a broad
spectrum of current research in algebraic geometry. AGNES is held
biannually at the
participating universities in the Northeast.
