Foliation Theory and Algebraic Geometry

Celebrating the 70th Birthday of Fernando Cukierman
IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, June 24 – 28, 2024

The conference “Foliation Theory and Algebraic Geometry” will bring together renowned experts and young researchers working in holomorphic foliation theory and algebraic geometry.

The theory of holomorphic foliations has been crucial in central advances in complex algebraic geometry in recent decades. At the same time, complex algebraic geometry has given a new boost to the study of foliations. Examples range from the recent development of a theory of foliated varieties according to their Kodaira dimension to the trend to apply methods from deformation theory to study the moduli space of foliations on projective varieties.

The conference aims to encourage new scientific collaborations between conference participants and familiarize students and young researchers with the vividness and diversity of cutting-edge research on holomorphic foliations, algebraic geometry, and interactions.
