Scientific activities
The arguments presented and the research problems assigned to the participants are connected to the research areas of abelian varieties, moduli spaces of curves and algebraic surfaces and Galois theory of rational function fields of algebraic varieties.
During the first 10 days of the main teachers held daily one hour seminars each, introducing the theoretical bases and the main results of the theories involved, assisted by various supplementary lessons with examples and applications by their collaborators. The detailed list of these activities, the assigned problems and working groups follows below.
