## Events in the coming year

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on August 18, 2009

Over the past few weeks I have been updating the Events page, and there is now a long list of interesting conferences, workshops and summer schools taking place in the coming year. I wish there was a more sensible way of finding and listing events, like a “conference section” on the arXiv, following the subject classification used for preprints. The current way of doing things, with random mathematicians posting random lists of events on various webpages seems very inefficient for everyone involved. Anyway, if you share some of my interests then you are likely to find something useful in the updated list. Note that if you are young there is often funding available from the conference organisers if you apply early.

Some highlights:

- A workshop in Leiden in October, under the somewhat obscure name Frobenius lifts. One of the main topics covered is so called Lambda-algebraic geometry, which is a new kind of geometry related to the field with one element. See this preprint of Borger for more exciting details!
- A one-year research programme in Barcelona on arithmetic geometry, with a number of workshops.
- An Advanced School on Homological and Geometrical Methods in Representation Theory, in Italy in January/February.

See the full list for much more…

Lambda-algebraic geometryWow, that sounds really cool. I just borrowed the old LNM on lambda rings from the maths library. Sadly, it was obvious that nobody had used it for ages.

describesin his texts ideas of using geometry over and “inter-universal geometry” – a n-categorial generalization of alg. geometry, with anabelian geometry as special case of a kind of feedback-structure in geometry – to prove theabc-conjecture.## Thomas said
