This program concerns the study of the various geometric properties of complex manifolds, and more generally complex analytic varieties.  Complex manifolds/varieties arise naturally in and are deeply connected to other branches of mathematics, including hyperbolic geometry, symplectic geometry, number theory and mathematical physics such as string theory.

In the study of complex manifolds, there are two important approaches.  The first one is the analytic approach, which involves the use of complex analysis, PDE and differential geometric methods.  The second one is the algebraic approach, which is the subject of complex algebraic geometry.  Often these two approaches complement each other, and there are important problems in the area which may be solved by different approaches with varying degrees of algebraic and analytic flavor.

The aim of this program is to bring together groups of complex analysts, complex differential geometers and complex algebraic geometers to:


  • explain to other groups their methods and techniques;
  • survey recent developments and disseminate their own research findings relating broadly to the area of complex geometry;
  • chart new directions of research; and
  • explore possible collaborations, especially among the different groups


  • Informal discussions: 22 - 24 Jul 2013
  • Workshop on Complex Geometry: 25 Jul - 5 Aug 2013
  • Informal discussions: 6 - 9 Aug 2013

* Our office will be closed on these public holidays, 8 Aug 2013 - Hari Raya Puasa & 9 Aug 2013 - National Day.

Students and researchers who are interested in attending these activities are requested to complete the online registration form.
