**Aim of the course**

In this online seminar, we study some aspect of F1-geometry with a focus on tropical scheme theory. In the first part of the seminar, we will study some basic concepts, such as monoid schemes, blueprints and tropical varieties. There is some flexibility in the choice of some more advanced topics for the later parts of the seminar.

The time of the seminar is Mondays, 13:00--14:30 in Rio (this is 11:00--12:30 EST, 17:00--18:30 Roma / Paris, 21:30--23:00 Calcutta).
