\n< p>Spec(Q-bar) is the first conference to celebrate and promote research ad vances of LGBT2Q mathematicians specialising in algebraic geometry\, arith metic geometry\, commutative algebra\, and number theory. This conference capitalises on recent thematic program successes in algebraic geometry at Fields\, the Thematic Program on Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry (July 1 - December 31\, 2016) and the Thematic Program on Homological Algebra of M irror Symmetry (July 1 - December 31\, 2019). Spec(Q-bar) will create an e mpowering and engaging environment which provides LGBT2Q visibility in alg ebraic geometry\, will support junior LGBT2Q academics\, and will crystall ise new collaborative networks for participants. Algebraic geometry\, clas sically\, is the study of the geometry of solutions of polynomial equation s\; through modern advances it has become an intersectional mathematical f ield\, drawing from various aspects of algebra\, number theory\, geometry\ , combinatorics and even mathematical physics. This conference aims to hig hlight strong mathematical research in a wide array of algebraic geometry\ , broadly defined. The conference will feature some plenary talks by world -leading researchers from a range of areas of algebraic geometry. To facil itate new connections across the various threads of algebraic geometry\, p lenary talks at Spec(Q-bar) will be aimed a general algebro-geometric audi ence.\nThis activity will bring together mathematicians spanning al l academic ranks to create ideal networking and mentorship for LGBT2Q acad emics while disseminating key achievements of trans and queer algebraic ge ometers. Queer and trans academics often have a diffcult experience develo ping key collaborations and networks of trusted colleagues. Each research connection\, grant\, and application involves a conscious decision of how much of one’s queer/trans identity to disclose. This conference provides a safe space to develop ones network while removing these barriers. In su ch spaces\, one can discuss mathematics with new colleagues while unbridle d with many societal challenges that they face in mathematical communities . When a mathematician feels free to be themselves in all ways\, they are able to immerse themselves in creative mathematical thought.

The Fields Institute is a centre for mathematical research activity - a place where mathematician s from Canada and abroad\, from academia\, business\, industry and financi al institutions\, can come together to carry out research and formulate pr oblems of mutual interest. Our mission is to provide a supportive and stim ulating environment for mathematics innovation and education.

\nThe Fields Institute promotes mathematical activity in Canada and helps to exp and the application of mathematics in modern society.
