The Basel-Dijon-EPFL Joint Seminars is a series of 2 days workshops on the themes of Algebraic Geometry held on a biannual basis initially between the Institute of Mathematics of Burgundy in Dijon and the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Basel.
The series started in fall 2015 after a prequel in a form of a
French-Swiss Mini-Workshop organised in Dijon in 2014
in the context of the ANR Project "BirPol". A special additional joint edition called Mini-Workshop
Analytic and Algebraic Geometry
took place in Bern in 2016 in partnership with the Institute of Mathematics of the
University of Bern.
Since 2017, these workshops are organised with a third partner, the Mathematics section of the EPFL Lausanne and are thus called the Basel-Dijon-EPFL Joint Seminars.
The now traditional recipe of these meetings consists of one third of talks given by doctoral or post-doctoral students of the participating institutes, one third of talks given by permanent researchers of these institutes, one third of talks given by invited external speakers ... and one third of free discussions between the participants.
