KUMUNUjr provides an opportunity for young mathematicians studying commutative algebra in the Midwest to share their research and expertise with one another. Our discipline is an active one, with connections to algebraic geometry, cluster algebras, combinatorics, homological algebra, representation theory, statistics, and other areas. Furthermore, midwestern commutative algebra research continues to reflect the activity and diversity of the macrocosm of the commutative algebra research community.
More information can be found on the conference in general at last year’s website:
We anticipate being able to provide at least partial funding for travel and lodging since our NSF application was successful (see the award: http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1303248)!
Feel free to contact any of the organizers with questions.
