September Algebraic Geometry Schools
The cross-border cooperation of Polish geometers has been stimulated by
September (or Autumn) Algebraic Geometry Schools, organized annually by
Michal Szurek since 1977. Some of these one week long meetings had a
form of workshops, with all participants contributing, while other
were organized as series of lectures taught by experts. The schools
were focused on active research subjects and were offered to graduate
students and young researchers.
The financial support for the schools has been provided

Committee for Scientific Research (1989-2005),
