The "Ninth Arbeitstagung of the Second Series" will take place from Friday, June 5, to
Thursday, June 11, 2009. The opening lecture and perhaps a few other lectures will be
fixed in advance. All other talks will be decided on the spot by a democratic process,
following the traditional system.
The first Arbeitstagung took place from July 13 to July 20, 1957. The lecturers were: M. F.
Atiyah, H. Grauert, A. Grothendieck, F. Hirzebruch, N. Kuiper, and J. Tits. The first series
of 30 Arbeitstagungen was organized by F. Hirzebruch. The second series, which started
in 1993, is organized by the directors of the MPI.
Participation in the Arbeitstagung is not generally by invitation. Instead, the Arbeitstagung
is announced publicly, and anyone who wishes to do so can apply to the Max Planck
Institute for financial support stating how much they need, how much they can get from
other sources, and whether their participation depends on getting support. We will then try
to distribute the available funds in as fair a way as possible, giving priority to the people
with more limited financial resources or to those who are attending the Arbeitstagung for
the first time. Our funding is limited, but we hope that no one who really wants to attend is
unable to do so for financial reasons. Decisions on financial support will be made in spring
2009. We will provide assistance with finding hotel accommodation.
