RIMS Research Project (2022)

Singularity theory special months

This event has ended. This site is remained for the reference and record. Thank you very much for your join and support.

As one of the RIMS Research Projects, the period from October to December 2022 was the ``Singularity theory special months''. Four conferences was held for this project, a further conference via MSJ-SI (Math. Soc. Japan-Seasonal Institute) additionally held, for a total of five conferences in this period. Three of them were schools, and for each of those a theme was specified with main talks given as a series of lectures by a leading researcher of that field. These lectures were for researchers of singularity theory in fields related to each theme. See below for detailed information. (RIMS = Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Kyoto University)

All of conferences were held in hybrid format.

To participate in each conference, registrations were required for both in-person and remote participation.
(Registration forms has been closed.)
