Algebraic and topological interplay of algebraic varieties
A Conference in Honor of the 60th Birthday of Enrique Artal and the 55th Birthday of Alejandro Melle

versión en español

The aim of this conference is to approach Singularity Theory from the point of view of the multiple connections between Topology, Algebra, Geometry, and Number Theory.
This meeting is structured so that it brings together both senior world-renowned specialists in the subject, young researchers, and graduate students.
For this purpose we combine plenary talks, poster sessions, and two mini courses.

The conference will take place in Jaca (Huesca, Spain) in the Pyrenees from June 12 through June 17, 2023.

The strategic singular location of this ancient city in the Pyrenees will allow us to enjoy the talks as well as the landscape. Aereal Jaca Photo

The main topics are:

Topology of singularities and related fields, braid groups, braid monodromy, hyperplane arrangements, group actions, mathematical physics, singularities and algebraic geometry, knot theory, and fundamental groups of curve complements.
