First announcement. Please distribute.

Dear colleague,

We are pleased to announce a SCHOOL and CONFERENCE on

Algebraic Geometry, D-modules and Foliations

to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina,

from July 14 to July 26, 2008.


The main aim of this School and Conference is to bring together
specialists, researchers and students working on various aspects of
Algebraic Geometry, of Foliations, and of D-modules. The objective is
to discuss and further develop various interactions among these

Some areas of interest are: projective geometry, birational geometry,
local and global theory of distributions and foliations on algebraic
varieties, theory of D-modules, representation theory and geometry of
moduli spaces.

The academic program consists of a School during the first week and a
Conference during the second week. In the School there will be
courses on topics of current interest taught by leading experts. In
the Conference there will be Plenary Talks and Sessions on Algebraic
Geometry, on D-modules and on Foliations.


SCHOOL: 14 - 19 July, 2008.

The following courses will be offered:

1) Geometry of projective varieties and degenerations.
Professors Ciro Ciliberto and Francesco Russo.

2) Fourier-Mukai transforms.
Professor Daniel Huybrechts.

3) Microlocal study of D-modules.
Professor Masaki Kashiwara.

4) Spaces of algebraic foliations of codimension one.
Professor Alcides Lins Neto.


CONFERENCE: 21 - 26 July, 2008.

The program consists of morning Plenary Lectures and the following
afternoon Sessions:
Algebraic Geometry. Coordinated by Ciro Ciliberto.
D-modules. Coordinated by Teresa Monteiro Fernandes.
Foliations. Coordinated by Jorge Vitorio Pereira.
