Algebraic Geometry and Categories
On the occasion of André Hirschowitz's 61st birthday
June 610, 2005
This conference will celebrate André Hirschowitz's
61st birthday.
An emblematic figure in modern algebraic geometry, André has
inspired generations of researchers young and old with his
enthusiastic approach to mathematics. The conference will cover
a wide range of subjects, in the spirit of André's openness,
curiosity and lively interest in all areas of algebraic geometry
and related fields. The conference themes include many areas of
important recent progress in projective geometry but also
extend to higher stacks, and applications of lambdacalculus
and computer science techniques towards the formalization of
algebraic geometry, an interest he developed starting many
years ago with his collaboration at the INRIA computerscience
labs in SophiaAntipolis.
