In the frame of
the European Project RTN (HPRN-CT-2002-00287 ``Algebraic K-Theory,
Linear Algebraic Groups and Related Structures''), the department
of mathematics in Lens organizes a mini-course on the subject of
quadratic forms, from 19 to 23 June 2006 (the week preceding the
Conference in Oberwolfach on quadratic forms). The program
includes three courses (each of 5 hours), and three talks given by
young researchers. Here is the list of speakers:
Skip Garibaldi (Emory University, Atlanta, USA)
Detlev W. Hoffmann (University of Nottingham, UK)
"Quadratic forms in characteristic 2"
Bruno Kahn (CNRS-Université Paris 7, France)
Baptiste Calmès (Université Paris 7, France)
"A push-forward for the coherent Witt groups of
Shripad Garge (Université Paris 7, France) "On excellence of $F_4$"
