Workshop on Derived Geometry

Sign in
From June 06, 2022
to June 10, 2022

This workshop is part of the Follow-Up Higher Homotopical Structures


Derived methods, such as sheaf cohomology and the derived category of a ring or a scheme, have a long history in geometry and algebra. More recently, thanks to work of Simpson, Toen-Vezzosi, Lurie, and many others, derived methods have been incorporated into the very foundations of the subject of algebraic geometry, leading to a variety of interesting applications and even more newly emerging questions and avenues of research.

The aim of this workshop is twofold: we aim to make some of the ideas accessible to a wider audience, with some introductory talks aimed at students and researchers interested in gaining entry into the field, while at the same time providing a forum for to present relevant research in derived geometry, broadly construed.

Workshop’s ​information


  • Higher topoi and their homotopy theory
  • Derived algebraic and analytic geometry
  • Elliptic cohomology and topological modular forms
  • Floer homotopy theory and link homologies
  • The cobordism hypothesis and topological field theories
