London workshop on arithmetic geometry and homotopy theory

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on May 8, 2012

At Imperial College London, from May 30th to June 1st. Many interesting talks, but the main theme appears to be the recent work of Harpaz and Schlank in which they use etale homotopy theory to study rational points and in particular obstructions to the local-global principle. Their big preprint is available here.

Related to this theme there is also a longer summer course in Lausanne in July/August with lectures by Harpaz and Schlank, as part of the of the EPFL program on rational points and algebraic cycles.
