The purpose of this school is to familiarise advanced Master’s students, Ph.D. students and early career researchers with the central themes of research in arithmetic geometry,and teach them both classical and state-of-the-art tools in the field. The research school is an introduction to the conference SAGA, “Symposium on Arithmetic Geometry and its Applications” and it consists of four 3-day mini-courses, taught by teams of internationally renowned researchers, who are known to be excellent teachers.

L’objectif de cette école est de familiariser les étudiants avancés en master, les doctorants et les chercheurs en début de carrière avec les thèmes centraux de la recherche en géométrie arithmétique, et de leur enseigner les outils classiques et de pointe dans ce domaine. L’école de recherche est une introduction à la conférence SAGA, « Symposium on Arithmetic Geometry and its Applications » et consiste en quatre mini-cours de 3 jours, dispensés par des équipes de chercheurs de renommée internationale, connus pour être d’excellents enseignants.
