This workshop will focus on the two-way traffic between Geometry and Commutative Algebra. It will consist of three courses, each on foundations, current research, and open problems in Commutative Algebra and Geometry:
  1. Secant Varieties
  2. Fat Points and Symbolic Powers
  3. Differential Graded Commutative Algebra
Each course will have daily lectures and problem sessions where participants come together to discuss background material, exercises, and possible research problems. The workshop will provide a focused venue for graduate students, recent Ph.D.'s, and established researchers to enrich their background on diverse aspects of the disciplines, to learn about recent developments, and to establish connections with other researchers.
