This is a workshop on arithmetic geometry, a hybrid of number theory and algebraic geometry. The goals of this conference include providing graduate students opportunities to give talks, increasing interaction between number theory and algebraic geometry research groups, and strengthening networks for mathematicians from underrepresented groups.

We will hold a workshop at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, February 9-10, 2019, providing a diverse group of early career researchers the opportunity to learn about specific topics in the arithmetic and algebraic geometry of surfaces from a diverse set of prominent active researchers.
