The goal of this workshop is to discuss some recent results on the classification/structure of foliations on projective varieties having effective anti-canonical bundle. Two main classes of foliations are going to be discussed:

|Fri Dec 5|
|3:00-4:00||Jorge Vitorio Pereira||Classification of low degree foliations on projective spaces|
|4:30-5:30||Christopher Hacon||Birational classification of foliations on surfaces I|
|Sat Dec 6|
|9:30-10:30||Christopher Hacon||Birational classification of foliations on surfaces II|
|11:00-12:00||James McKernan||Rational curves on foliated varieties|
|2:00-3:00||Stéphane Druel||Fano foliations I|
|3:30-4:30||Jorge Vitorio Pereira||Foliations with trivial canonical class I|
|Sun Dec 7|
|9:30-10:30||Stéphane Druel||Fano foliations II|
|11:00-12:00||Jorge Vitorio Pereira||Foliations with trivial canonical class II|
University of Utah, December 5-7, 2014
All talks are in LCB Builing of the Math Department, Room 225. During the weekend the glass door will be closed but the main door on the front of the building will be open.
Please refer to the interactive campus map to locate the LCB Building as well as the University Guest House.
To reach campus or the Guest House from the airport, taxis are about $25. Alternatively, there is the Trax (a city train, please refer to Rail System Map) which run from the airport to downton (green line, from Airport to Courthouse), where you change to another Trax train that brings you to campus and the Guest House (red line, from Courthouse to Stadium 1349 E 500 S and, respectively, Fort Douglas, 200 S Wasatch Dr)
There is no formal registration, everyone is welcome to attend. If you plan to attend and would like to request financial support and/or logding arrangemenents, please send an email to Gail Howick (cc Tommaso de Fernex) including the following information:
