Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry

Jan Nekovář was a mathematician who worked and has made many significant and seminal contributions to algebraic geometry. He left us prematurely in November 2022. Here is a tribute note (in French) by Pierre Colmez.

In his memory, Anna Cadoret, IMJ-PRG, Wiesława Nizioł, IMJ-PRG, and Sarah Zerbes, ETH Zürich, organize a conference in arithmetic algebraic geometry at IHES from October 9th to 13th, 2023.

This is an international conference in arithmetic geometry, aimed at covering some of the most recent advances in the field with a focus on the areas Jan Nekovář was interested in.
