Poster session: We had a poster session with 5 poster presenters.

Poster: Please have a look at our beautiful poster.

Pretalks:
There will be three pretalks, exclusively for graduate students, with a focus on birational geometry.

About AGNES

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.
