Upcoming conferences (and courses) in algebraic geometry

Here is a list of upcoming conferences, and online seminars and courses, involving algebraic geometry. For more information, check on google. I intend to keep this list vaguely up to date, but I make no guarantees. Please help me keep this current. (I tend to update it roughly every month unless someone gives me information directly.) It certainly isn't complete. My definition of algebraic geometry is broad, arbitrary, and changes with time. (Kiran Kedlaya maintains a similar list in arithmetic geometry.)

Online seminars: see mathseminars.org

I recently posted a list of online seminars in order to help people find online seminars in algebraic geometry. Since then, mathseminars.org has debuted, and I am very impressed by what the organizers have done. I recommend going there. (We now host our own seminar's abstracts there.)

Online courses

This is intended as some embryonic bit of information, which might serve until we (the community, all of us) develop something longer-term and more robust.

If there is no link, just write to the person listed to find out more (unless it is me, in which case I have nothing more to say just yet).

  • April 6 - June (10?), 2020: course on "Perverse Sheaves" (Cheng-Chiang Tsai, Stanford).
  • April 6 - (June 10?), 2020: seminar on "Bhargavology" (organized by Aaron Landesman, Stanford).
  • June, 2020 - ???: "Algebraic Geometry In The Time Of COVID", based on my "Rising Sea" notes (Ravi Vakil, Stanford).
  • From Kiran Kedlaya: I am thinking of teaching my regular graduate number theory course as a "hybrid" where it runs as usual for UCSD students (but remotely for the benefit of students who may not be able to get to campus, particularly first-year international students who can't get a visa in time) and in parallel for "the world" in some form. I haven't yet ironed out the details, but in any case the home page will be https://math.ucsd.edu/~kedlaya/math204a/ and updates will appear there as I work things out.
