    Algebraic curves are one of the most studied areas of mathematics which create a very nice mixture of classical theoretical results with applications. In this session     we intend to bring together researchers who work in some of the areas described below

  • Equations of curves over their minimal field of definition

  • Field of moduli versus the field of definition

  • Neron-Tate models

  • Jacobians of curves and their decompositions

  • Selmer groups in Jacobians

  • Geometry of moduli spaces

  • Limit linear series and Brill-Noether theory

  • Pencils of genus-two curves

  • Period integrals for higher-genus curves

  • Aomoto-Gel’fand and GKZ systems, A-hypergeometric functions, Appell-functions

  • K3 surfaces related to genus-two curves and to the six-line configuration

  • Kuga-Satake variety of Abelian surfaces

  • Prym varieties and their moduli

  • Mirror symmetry

  • Heterortic/F-theory duality in the presence of Wilson lines

  • Seiberg-Witten curves and Dessins d’enfant

  • Tropical curves, automorphisms of tropical curves

  • Elliptic and hyperelliptic curve cryptography

  • Automotive security, embedded systems

  • Algebraic curves and their applications in industrial applications

  • others
