Fourth Latin American School on Algebraic Geometry and its Applications






The Escuela Latinoamericana de Geometría Algebraica (ELGA) series of schools quickly became a major event for algebraic geometry in Latin America working as meeting point for the whole community due in part to the novelty of having some of the best researchers in our eld lecturing in Latin Americaf

The goal of this Fourth Edition is again to bring experts in algebraic geometry and present diferent topics of current research to advance graduate students, postdocs and young researchers from Latin America and other parts of the worldf There will be ve main courses and several survey lectures in english on a wide range of themes in algebraic geometry and its applications, completed by a series of research talks given by young researchersf

The main courses will be given by : Jean-Pierre Demailly, Igor Dolgachev, Angela Ortega, Vincent Pilloni and Claire Voisinf
