Conference on

Quadratic Forms in Chile 2018

8th -12th of january 2018


 {What?}
In the spirit and tradition of previous international conferences on the algebraic and arithmetic properties of quadratic forms in Chile that had been organized or promoted by Ricardo Baeza, we plan a one week Conference on Quadratic Forms (and related topics) in Talca. The conference will end with a conference dinner, where we will also take the occasion to celebrate Ricardo's 75th birthday. 


A preceeding postgraduate school on "Quadratic forms over function fields" will take place in Santiago (at the Universidad de Santiago de Chile) from january 2nd to Friday 5th of january 2018, just prior to the conference (see also the item on the side bar).

 

{Where and when?}
The conference will take place at the Instituto de Matemática y Física of the Universidad de Talca in Talca (260 km south of Santiago). We plan to start the event on monday after lunch the 8th of january and we will end it with a conference dinner (cena de despertida) on friday night, the 12th of january. International flights arrive to Santiago usually in the morning, but since the commute to Talca will take about 4 hours, we recommend arriving in Santiago on sunday or before.
