Commuter rail lines connect with the Orange Line at Ruggles Station, Back Bay Station, and North Station.

Financial support: We will try to cover travel costs, with preference given to junior participants. Graduate students applying to participate in their first AGNES should ask their advisor to send a short e-mail of support (one paragraph) to either or to one of the organizers.

About AGNES: AGNES is a 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 twice a year at the participating universities in the Northeast.
