Theme of workshop:

The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in anabelian geometry and related topics. We hope to provide an overview on the latest advances in several topics in anabelian geometry, including: anabelian geometry in positive characteristics, birational geometry of function fields and n-dimensional local fields, the section conjecture, anabelian geometry of moduli spaces, and applications to Diophantine problems.
