The Brazilian and French communities working on foliation theory have a history of long-term collaborations. To maintain this tradition, CIRM and IMPA will host a School on Foliation Theory involving the two communities. 

The event, which will happen simultaneously at CIRM and IMPA, will be a school on foliation theory with approximately 40 attendees, 20 at CIRM and 20 at IMPA. Its core will be 4 mini-courses, each one of them with three sessions of fifty minutes. Two of the mini-courses will be taught presentially at CIRM, and broadcast live to IMPA. Likewise, the two other mini-courses will be delivered at IMPA and broadcast to CIRM. Besides the mini-courses, we plan to have six short talks by Ph.D. students or young post-docs, three on each side of the Atlantic.

To convey the liveliness and diversity of activities in foliation theory we invited specialists on different subjects whose research involves, in one way or another, foliation theory. 


Carolina Araujo (IMPA) & João Paulo Figueredo (UFMG)  Regular foliations on algebraic surfaces
Rémi Jaoui (Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1)  Foliations in model theory
Lucy Moser (Université de Bourgogne)   Algebraic actions on complex varieties and their real forms
Javier Ríbon (Federal Fluminense University)    Local holomorphic dynamics

In February, the time difference between Marseille and Rio de Janeiro will be four hours. To cope with that, we will follow the schedule below.
