Perspectives on Complex Algebraic Geometry

May 22-25, 2015
Columbia University

The workshop "Perspectives on Complex Algebraic Geometry" will be held at Columbia University, from May 22 to May 25, 2015. (poster)

This workshop will survey recent developments in the field of complex algebraic geometry, with a focus on the following three themes: The Topology and Geometry of Algebraic Surfaces and 4-manifolds, Vector bundles and G-bundles, and Geometric applications of Hodge theory. 

The workshop celebrates the achievements and influence of Robert Friedman, on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
