IAS-PCMI Summer School on Moduli Spaces of Riemann Surfaces July 03, 2011 - July 23, 2011
Parent Program: --
Location: Park City Math Institute, Utah
Organizers Benson Farb (University of Chicago), Richard Hain (Duke University), and Eduard Looijenga (University of Utrecht, Netherlands)
Description Location: IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute, Salt Lake City, Utah

The study of moduli spaces of Riemann surface is a rich mixture of geometric topology, algebraic topology, complex analysis and algebraic geometry. Each community of researchers that studies these moduli spaces generates its own problems and its own techniques for solving them. However, it is not uncommon for researchers in one community to solve problems generated by another once they become aware of them. The goal of this summer school is to give graduate students a broad background in the various approaches to the study of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces so that they will be aware of the problems and techniques of many of the communities that study these fascinating objects. Graduate student participants from the various communities will be encouraged to interact with their colleagues from the other communities of students in order to maximize cross fertilization.

Please visit the PCMI workshop home page for further details on the subject and the format of the summer school.

Special restrictions:

  1. In addition to the nomination at MSRI, a separate PCMI Application (Application deadline: January 31, 2011) is required to participate in this workshop.
  2. Due to the small number of students supported by MSRI, only one student per institution will be accepted.

For eligibility and how to apply, see the Summer Graduate Workshop homepage

All of MSRI's openings for this workshop have been filled. New nominations cannot be accepted.

Alternative funding might be available through PCMI. Please apply for funding when submitting the PCMI Applictation
(Application deadline: January 31, 2011).
