The international conference "Perspectives on Algebraic Varieties" will be held in Levico Terme (Trento, ITALY) from September 6 to September 11, 2010.
The study of varieties from a classical or explicit perspective is central to modern algebraic geometry, and it remains the foundation for contemporary developments such as the theory of moduli and quantum cohomology. This conference will concentrate on recent developments in the theory of algebraic varieties, with an emphasis on low-dimensional varieties and on moduli spaces.
The conference is dedicated to the achievements and influence of Fabrizio Catanese, Ciro Ciliberto and Alessandro Verra, on the occasion of their 60th birthday.
