The "School on Deformation Theory IV" will be held in the period September 16-20 2024 at Dipartimento di Matematica Guido Castelnuovo "Sapienza University". (Roma, Italy).

This is the forth Workshop in Deformation Theory after Bari 2018, Rome 2010 and Trieste 2004.

There will be four 4 hours courses, some talks and ample time for free discussion.
