**Two counterexamples stemming from Raynaud's surfaces**Speaker:

**Lei Zhang**(University of Science and Technology of China)Abstract: Subadditivity of Kodaira dimensions and adjoint linear system are two classical problems in the classification of varieties. Concerning the two problems in characteristic $p$, for a long time, we have the same expectations as in characteristic zero, namely, the so called Iitaka conjecture and Fujita conjecture. But we constructed counterexamples last year, which stem from the construction of Raynaud's surfaces. In this talk, we will talk about our examples and propose reasonable expectations. These are joint work with Y. Gu, Y. Zhang, P. Cascini, S. Ejiri and J. Kollar.

**Quillen metric, BCOV invariant and motivic integration**Speaker:

**Yeping Zhang**(Korea Institute for Advanced Study)Abstract: Bershadsky, Cecotti, Ooguri and Vafa constructed a real valued invariant for Calabi-Yau manifolds, which is now called the BCOV invariant. The BCOV invariant is conjecturally related to the Gromov-Witten theory via mirror symmetry. In this talk, we prove the conjecture that birational Calabi-Yau manifolds have the same BCOV invariant. We also build an analogue between the BCOV invariant and the motivic integration. The result presented in this talk is a joint work with Lie Fu.

**Stability conditions and Fujita's conjecture**Speaker:

**Hao Sun**(Shanghai Normal University)Abstract: We will introduce the definition of Bridgeland stability conditions and the recent progress on the construction of Bridgeland stability conditions on projective threefolds with vanishing Chern classes. The application to Fujita's conjecture will also be discussed.

**$n$ dimensional Minimal models with Kodaira dimension $n-1$ and trivial $c_1^{n-2}c_2$**Speaker:

**Feng Hao**(Katholieke Universiteit Leuven)Abstract: In this talk, I will give a classification of minimal models of dimension $n$, Kodaira dimension $n-1$ and trivial $c_1^{n-2}c_2$, which is a question proposed by Kollar in dimension three. Also, I will show for minimal threefolds, $c_1c_2$ are either $0$ or universally bounded away from $0$. This is a joint work with Stefan Schreieder.

**Projective manifolds whose tangent bundle contains a strictly nef subsheaf**Speaker:

**Wenhao Ou**(Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences)Abstract: If $X$ is a projective manifold whose tangent bundle $T_X$ contains a strictly nef locally free subsheaf, we prove that $X$ is isomorphic to a projective bundle over a hyperbolic manifold. This is joint with Jie Liu and Xiaokui Yang.

**Finite $p$-groups of birational automorphisms and a characterization of rational varieties**Speaker:

**Jinsong Xu**(Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University)Abstract: We study finite $p$-subgroups of birational automorphism groups. We prove that there exists a constant $R(n)$ such that a rationally connected variety of dimension $n$ over an algebraically closed field is rational if its birational automorphism group contains a $p$-subgroups of maximal rank for $p>R(n)$. We will also discuss some related questions on finite $p$-groups.
