V Latin American School of Algebraic Geometry (V ELGA)

CIMPA School

Cabo Frio, RJ, August 12-23, 2024

The goal of this CIMPA School is to train young mathematicians working in Latin America in some of the most active areas of research in Algebraic Geometry, as well as to promote greater interaction among researchers and students, and to build a network of collaborations. The V ELGA is organised in partnership with the Clay Mathematics Institute.

All participants must register by May 1st 2024 both via IMPA’s webpage and via CIMPA’s webpage.
