The "Workshop on Differential Geometry” has become a traditional event that takes place every year in the state of Alagoas, Brazil, during the Brazilian summer,
congregating renowned international experts and members of the Brazilian geometry community.
The 2020 edition will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the event, which has been organized since 2011 by the Institute of Mathematics of the Federal University of Alagoas (UFAL). There will be a balance of topics that are active in
Brazil and research directions that need to be stimulated and further developed.
In the  first week 5 advanced mini courses will be given by international experts while the second week will be devoted to research seminars.

Applicants should specify if they want to take part to only one of the two weeks of the Workshop.

• Minimal surfaces, constant mean curvature surfaces • Kahler geometry, extremal metrics
• Mathematical relativity, stability/rigidity phenomena • Mean curvature  ow
• Gluing and desingularization techniques, phase transition PDEs
