The Algebraic Geometry community in Brazil counts with several research groups dedicated with
diverse aspects of the field, like arithmetic geometry, birational geometry, classification of sheaves,
holomorphic foliations, and interactions with String Theory and mathematical physics.
The theory of moduli spaces is a common thread that unites all of these areas and also has a relevant interplay with other areas of mathematics.
Our goal is to bring together senior and young researchers currently working on moduli spaces and related areas on the occasion of the 2018 International Congress of Mathematicians. We expect to create an enviroment that enhances the exchange of new ideas through discussion sessions, and helps to establish working contacts, building on the existing network that links brazilian algebraic geometers to their colleagues abroad. In this way, we hope that such meeting will highlight Brazil as a major location for work in algebraic geometry to the next generation of researchers.
