March 27--28, 2004
Seminar on the Arithmetic and Geometry of Higher Dimensional Varieties
with Special Emphasis on Calabi-Yau Varieties and Mirror Symmetry

October 4-5 and November 8-9, 2003
Workshop on Arithmetic and Geometry of Algebraic Varieties
(with Special Emphasis on Calabi-Yau Varities)

Organized by James D. Lewis (Alberta) and Noriko Yui (Queen's)

The ``2002-03 Workshops on Calabi-Yau Varieties and Mirror Symmetry'' held last semester at the Fields Institute were very successful. In the coming academic year, we will broaden the subject in the form of a couple of weekend workshops on the "Arithemtic and Geometry of Algebraic Varieties (with Special Emphasis on Calabi--Yau Varieties)'', to be held at the Fields Institute.
