GLEN 2019, Sheffield
Singularities and Derived Categories
GLEN is a joint seminar in algebraic geometry between the Universities of Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and Edinburgh.
We hosted a two-day GLEN meeting in Sheffield on 13 – 14 November 2019. The talks were introductory to several themes on singularities and accessible to PhD students in algebraic geometry.
Eleonore Faber (Leeds)
Andreas Hochenegger (Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa)
Yanki Lekili (King’s College London)
Mirko Mauri (MPIM Bonn)
Greg Stevenson (Glasgow)
Michael Wemyss (Glasgow)
We had some funds to support early career researchers, for travel and accommodation. This was provided on the first-come first-served basis.
Wednesday 13 November 2019
Yanki Lekili: Categorical resolutions via Fukaya categories, 3.00pm - 4.15pm
Eleonore Faber: Singularities coming from reflection groups and the McKay correspondence, 4.45pm - 6.00pm
Thursday 14 November 2019
Michael Wemyss: Noncommutative Resolutions for Philistines, 9.30am - 10.45am
Andreas Hochenegger: Hochschild cohomology and formality, 11.15am - 12.30pm
Mirko Mauri: Introduction to dual complexes of singularities, 2.00pm - 3.15pm
Greg Stevenson: An introduction to derived singularities, 4.00pm - 5.00pm (joint with Topology Seminar, room LT7)
Talks took place at the School of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Sheffield, in room J-11 (floor J) at the Hicks Building.
The common room I-15 at floor I was open from 12.00pm on Wednesday to welcome you there.
On Wednesday evening we had a social dinner at 7.00pm at Mount Lebanon (address: 1st FLOOR, 169-171 West St, Sheffield S1 4EW).
Funding and accommodation
We kindly asked participants to reserve their own accommodation. We were able to cover accommodation and travel expenses for young researchers within reasonable bounds.

The workshop was supported by a LMS Scheme 3 grant, and EPSRC Programme grant “Enhancing Representation Theory, Noncommutative Algebra And Geometry Through Moduli, Stability And Deformations”, and we are grateful for their support.
