About the Summer School

The goal of the summer school is to bring together PhD students and postdocs working in algebraic geometry, representation theory or algebraic K-theory and wish to learn (more) about methods from the powerful derived and triangulated category toolkit and its applications. Three minicourses by distinguished lecturers will present recent important research using these tools, carefully presenting more foundational material on derived and triangulated categories along the way, as well as motivating examples. In addition, there will be some contributed talks by participants on other material suggested by the organizers (see below), and further research talks by invited speakers at the end of the week.

This summer school is part of the program of the DFG-funded research training group

GRK 2240: Algebro-geometric Methods in Algebra, Arithmetic and Topology .

It will take place in the Mathematisches Institut at Bergische Universitšt Wuppertal (see Arrangements for more details about the venue).

Support for travel expenses and accommodation is available for a limited number of PhD students and early career researchers (see Support for more details).

Depending on the pandamic situation, the summer school might become hybrid (both speakers and participants may choose) or even virtual. We currently expect regulations allowing both speakers and participants to choose if they attend on campus or by video. Many speakers intend to come to Wuppertal if they are allowed to. We might have to restrict the number of participants on Campus. Further information will hopefully be available in late July.



Invited speakers

Talks by participants: Some more foundational material will be presented by participants at the beginning of the week. If you are interested in giving such a talk, please contact the organizers. (Note: We have enough volunteers by now.)
