Effective aspects of complex hyperbolic varieties

Aber Wrac'h, France, September 10-14, 2007

Recent progresses in studying complex hyperbolic varieties and varieties of general type motivated by conjectures of Kobayashi, Green-Griffiths and Lang have shown that answers to these classification questions should depend on effective invariants of these varieties. The methods which have been used are quite different. The aim of this conference is to better understand the interactions of the different techniques used, such as:
