VBAC 2022 Conference

VBAC 2022: Moduli Spaces and Vector Bundles — New Trends

On the occasion of Peter Newstead’s 80th birthday

The theme of the conference is moduli theory in a broad sense, with an emphasis on questions related to vector bundles. Prof. Peter E. Newstead has been a central pillar in the research of vector bundles and their moduli spaces and he founded the VBAC group. In recognition of his many contributions the conference is organised on the occasion of his 80th birthday.

The conference will take place at the University of Warwick, 25-29 July, 2022.
