Workshop "Local negativity and positivity"
Leibniz Universität Hannover
March 7-10, 2017

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts and young researchers working on the following topics:
  • the Bounded Negativity Conjecture, and related problems in linear series;
  • Positivity of line bundles and related topics.
We are aiming at having a rich and diverse audience, and at creating a lively environment for stimulating discussion among the participants. There will be a sinergy between research talks and time for working in groups to investigate problems formulated by the audience itself.
