**Co-directors: **

**Alberto Facchini** (University of Padua) and** Marcus Tressl **(University of Manchester)

The scientific program of the workshop will offer an overview of the latest scientific advances in module theory with emphasis on the use of geometrical, topological, combinatorial and model theoretical methods. The main subjects will include model theory and module theory, representation theory of algebras, homological algebra, category theory. The workshop will provide the opportunity for an integrated approach to solve problems related to decidability issues, domestic string algebras, tilting modules, etc. Early-stage researchers will be encouraged to present their findings.

**Dates**

Program begins Saturday July 29 and ends Tuesday August 1 2017.

Participants are expected to arrive on Friday July 28 and to depart on Wednesday August 2.
