## Workshop on Topology of Real Algebraic Varieties

### To be held at The Fields Institute

for Research in
Mathematical Sciences

### January 6-10, 1997

This workshop will focus on the topological aspects of real algebraic
varieties, including singularities and invariants of real algebraic sets,
resolution theorems, algebraic homology, distribution of real algebraic sets in
the projective space and moduli spaces of algebraic structures. This workshop is
the first of three workshops to be held in conjunction with the program on
Singularity Theory and Geometry between January and June 1997 at the Institute.
