## Description

After the success and impact of Spec(Q⎯⎯⎯⎯), held at the Fields Institute in 2022, Spec(Q¯(2πi)) again aims to celebrate and promote research advances of LGBTQ2I (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, 2-spirit , Intersex) mathematicians specialising in algebraic geometry, arithmetic geometry, commutative algebra, and number theory. The first edition of the conference proved to be extremely important to lay the foundations for a fertile, supportive and stimulating scientific queer community in the areas of algebraic geometry, commutative algebra and number theory. Building on the strengths of the first edition, Spec(Q¯(2πi)) will create an empowering and engaging environment which provides LGBTQ2I visibility in algebraic geometry, will support junior LGBTQ2I academics, and will crystallise new collaborative networks for participants.

Algebraic geometry, classically, is the study of the geometry of solutions of polynomial equations; through modern advances it has become an intersectional mathematical field, drawing from various aspects of algebra, number theory, geometry, combinatorics and even mathematical physics. This conference aims to highlight strong mathematical research in a wide array of topics in algebraic geometry, broadly defined. The conference will feature some plenary talks by world-leading researchers from a range of areas of algebraic geometry. To facilitate new connections across the various threads of algebraic geometry, plenary talks at Spec(Q¯(2πi)) will be aimed at a general algebro-geometric audience.
