Geometry and Compactifications, Alessandro Tomasiello (Milano Bicocca U.) — 16 hours

Important Notice:

The spread of the coronavirus has changed our everyday lives. As many travel restrictions are still in place, even though some countries are slowly opening up again, the situation remains unpredictable.

If the situation keeps steadily improving, we plan to reopen GGI activities with the school LACES 2020 on November 30th. The school will be held in person, and a reduced number of participants (about 30) will be able to attend the lectures. The GGI will implement social distancing both in classes and in offices. The institute will also provide surgical masks for all the participants. All the common areas will be periodically sanitized and endowed with disinfectant dispensers.

We shall also select additional 20/25 applicants, who will be able to attend the school as a virtual event through an interactive platform such as Zoom, G-meet, or Team.

Consult this webpage periodically to be informed of any change in the situation. See this link for updates on the regulations for travelling to Italy.
