A Research Training Network of the European Union



Activities of the network

The AAG network promotes the scientific cooperation between its nodes, with a particular emphasis on the training of young researchers (pre- and post-doctoral researchers). To this end, the network organizes or co-sponsors various schools, workshops and conferences, which in general have a strong instructional component.


Among its activities for the training of young researchers, the AAG network organizes a series of small workshops or conferences (called "mini-conferences") devoted to specific subjects selected in its work programme.

The following mini-conferences have been organized by the network, or are currently under preparation:

   Workshop on F-isocrystals and rigid cohomology

Organizers: F. Baldassarri (Padova), P. Berthelot (Rennes).
The workshop has had two sessions : after the first session, which took place in Padova on December 11-12, 2004, the second one took place in Rennes, on June 1-3, 2005.
Details about the organization and the scientific programme can be found on the home page of the workshop.

Special Year in Arakelov Theory and Shimura Varieties

A Special Year on "Arakelov geometry and Shimura varieties" has taken place at the CRM (Bellaterra-Barcelona) during 2005-06.
Information can be found on the activity's web page:


The final conference was held at the CRM from July 10 to 15, 2006, on the theme

Recent Developments in the Arithmetic of Shimura Varieties and Arakelov Geometry.

Mid-term conference

To mark the mid-term of the present contract, a general conference in arithmetic algebraic geometry has been organized in Spain in 2006 by the AAG network. It has been approved as a satellite conference to the International Congress of Mathematicians ICM2006.
It has taken place in El Escorial, from September 3 to September 9.
More information is available from the Web site of the conference.

Final network conference

A final conference has been organized a few months before the termination of the network (January 2008). It has taken place in Cetraro (Italy), from October 7, 2007 (Sunday, arrival day) to October 13, 2007 (Saturday, departure day).
More information is availbale on the Web site of the conference.

Other research conferences

The members of the AAG network contribute to the organization of many other conferences on various topics of the network's programme.
