Hélène Esnault  will lecture on Geometry over finite fields and over the complex numbers: some examples.
Eckart Viehweg will lecture on Families of projective varieties over curves

The school is aimed towards PhD students and young researches interested in algebraic geometry.
Talks by participants are welcome.

Funds are available to cover accomodation of most of participants.
Unfortunately we cannot contribute towards travel. There is NO conference fee.
Arrival on Wednesday afternoon is possible.

All lectures will take place at:

ROOM number 114
Instytut Matematyki AP
ul. Podchorazych 2
Krakow, Poland

How, where, when...

All lectures will be held in the Institute of Mathematics of Akademia Pedagogiczna,
ul. Podchorazych 2, Krakow, ROOM 114 (1st floor)

All participants will be accommodated in Hotel "Za kolumnami",
ul. Armii Krajowej 9a, tel. 0048-12-662 70 00

Coming from the railway station "Krakow Glowny" the best option is to take
a tramway number 4, 13 or 14 and go to the stop which is called
"Akademia Pedagogiczna" and which is just at the school location.
The hotel is 5 minutes walk from there.

The other possibility is to take a bus. However one has to change (ask the driver!)
and due to reconstruction at the railway station it is NOT easy to
find bus stops. The buses going to the Hotel are: 103,139,159,173,208,228.

The last possibility is to take a taxi either to Akademia or to the hotel.
The cost is approximately 20 PLN but it is adviced to ask the driver
in advance!

Scientific activities start on Thursday, 1 December at 14:00 in room 114.

There will be coffee-break between any two lectures served in the front of the lecture hall.
On Friday and Saturday morning from 9:00 there will be breakfast served in the bar of
Akademia Pedagogiczna. I appologize, there is NO breakfast in the hotel! The
breakfast served in the bar of Akademia is ALSO for local participants! And it is free.

Lunch on Friday will be served also in the bar. All participants will get vouchers
entitling to order a lunch at no cost.

Friday evening there will be a common dinner in Kazimierz area. Exact location will be
communicated later.

Everybody is cordially welcome to participate!
