Kähler geometry is a very active research field, at the crossroads between algebraic and Riemannian geometry. Important breakthrough, that lead to solve the Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture in the Fano case, have been achieved recently. A spring school involving mini-lectures and talks around this thread of new ideas in Kähler geometry is organized at Nantes University. The goal of the school is to develop certain technical skills, useful to address a variety of important questions in algebraic geometry and global analysis on manifolds, aimed for PhD students and young researchers. Geometric flows, like the Kähler-Ricci flow for instance, and the associated quantification by the Donaldson dynamical system, will be among the essential tools dealt with during the school.
Conference - Teichmüller Theory in Higher Dimension and Mirror Symmetry
Teichmüller theory and mirror symmetry are very active domains. In this conference, we propose two series of lectures by two world leaders :
Misha Verbitsky on Teichmüller theory
Hirochi Iritani on mirror symmetry
Both will gave each morning an one hour lecture followed in the afternoon by more advanced results by internationnal mathematicians. The goal of this conference is to bring together matematicians from different backgrounds and also to give an overview of the subjetcs to young PhD and post-doc students.

This conference will focus on dynamical systems which naturally preserve a measure with infinite mass. These systems appear in a geometric or probabilistic context, or may come from natural sciences. When the invariant measure has infinite mass, recurrence is no longer automatic, usual mixing properties disappear and new asymptotical properties (such as rationnal ergodicity) may occur. Such systems may develop various and subtil behaviours, which could not exists in finite measure dynamics.
This conference will gather international experts on this topic, and will allow young researcher to have an easy access to the large recent developpment on such questions.
Conference - Dynamics of algebraic transformations
Organization board: Ian Biringer, Ludovic Marquis, Juan Souto
Scientific board: Uri Bader, Jeffrey F. Brock, Jean-Marc Schlenker
Numerous areas of mathematics are touched by what could be called Dynamics on representation varieties. For instance one could mention ergodic theory, Riemannian geometry, low-dimensional topology, Teichmüller theory, and so on... The aim of this workshop is to bring together graduate students, recent graduates and experts in these different areas, giving everybody ample time for discussions and collaborations. Next to a number of research talks, three mini-courses by Tsachik Gelander, Francois Labourie and Julien Marché will take place.
Workshop - Spatial Statistics and Image Analysis in Biology
Organization board: Bernard Delyon, Frédéric Lavancier, Charles Kervrann, Melen Leclerc
The 11th French-Danish Workshop on Spatial Statistics and Image Analysis in Biology (SSIAB 11) will take place in May 25-27 2016 in Rennes (Brittany) at the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (Inria) Centre. It is jointly organized by the Serpico team of Inria, the Mathematics research institute IRMAR of the University of Rennes 1 and the Inra Institute of Genetics, Environment and Plant Protection (IGEPP).This workshop is devoted to spatial statistics and image analysis and their applications in biology (e.g. agriculture, epidemiology, ecology, health, environment).
The first edition took place in Garchy (France, March 1996) and the last two editions took place in Aalborg (Denmark, May 2014) and Avignon (France, May 2012) respectively.
Online registration is open until the 30th of April. The registration is free and includes access to talks and lunches.
