Celebrating the 60th birthday of Federico Sánchez Bringas


One of the main goals of the meeting is the diffusion of methods and techniques devised and applied by the conference speakers among a large international group of young researchers.

The organizers also wish to provide a common ground for discussions leading to an increase in the international collaboration between different research groups, and to stimulate a substantial feedback for further research by inviting several speakers involved in practical applications of their methods. Singularity theory has long been known for successfully connecting numerous important areas of applications of mathematics to its most abstract branches. Recent years have been particularly fruitful for geometric aspects of singularity theory, including among others the study of singularities in real algebraic geometry, analytic geometry, symplectic geometry and Lorentzian geometry.

As a natural consequence of this progress many new applications to geometric optics, image recognition and processing, control theory, classical mechanics, general relativity theory and other disciplines have been pursued.

The week after the Conference we are organizing a mini-school in Geometry and Singularities celebrating the twenty years of the Geometry Seminar of our Department.

We are pleased to invite young researchers, graduate students to take part on it.
