First announcement and call for papers:
Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry
Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main, Germany,
June 3-7, 2013
Further information: http://math.uni-frankfurt.de/mega2013/
MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry (and its equivalent in Italian, French, Spanish, German, Russian, etc.). This series of biennial international conferences, with the tradition dating back to 1990, is devoted to computational and application aspects of Algebraic Geometry and related topics.
The conference will comprise invited talks, regular talks (based on a competitive submission process), software presentations, as well as a poster session.
- Lucia Caporaso (University Roma Tre)
- Felipe Cucker (City University of Hong Kong)
- Bas Edixhoven (University of Leiden)
- Benjamin Nill (Case Western Reserve University)
- Giorgio Ottaviani (University of Firenze)
- Frank-Olaf Schreyer (University of Saarbrücken)
- Markus Schweighofer (University of Konstanz)
- Seth Sullivant (North Carolina State University)
- Rekha Thomas (University of Washington)
Deadline for submissions of abstracts: December 1, 2012
Notification of acceptance decision: February 20, 2013
Deadline for submissions of software presentations: March 1, 2013
Notification of acceptance decision: March 31, 2013
Submissions: Submissions should contain recent original research relevant to effective methods in algebraic geometry (in a broad sense), including their foundations, analysis, complexity, computational aspects, practical issues and applications.
There are two possible modes of submission:
- Extended abstracts of at least four pages (not counting bibliography) that should contain full results, an outline of the proofs and all of the main ideas.
- Full papers with complete proofs.
The introduction should clearly state the contributions and achievements of the paper. It will be used to organize the refereeing, and should give sufficient details to understand the significance of the contribution and assign the paper to a proper referee.
Papers already submitted elsewhere, but not in press yet, might be acceptable but this fact has to be stated and a motivation given in the abstract. The acceptance of an already submitted paper depends on the special significance and on the research perspectives opened by the paper.
Papers are to be submitted online through the Easy Chair interface, which is available at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mega2013
Acceptance of a submitted contribution means acceptance for oral presentation only. It is planned that there will be a special issue of a journal to which authors of accepted original papers will be invited to submit the full version by the time of the conference. Only original research contributions will be considered for publication in the journal special issue.
There will also be a call for software presentations as well as a call for posters.

The eighth International School on Computer Algebra: COCOA 2013 will take place on 10-14th June 2013 at Institut für Mathematik of Universität Osnabrück (Germany). The school will be held the week after MEGA 2013 (3-7th June, Frankfurt am Main, Germany).
there will be two intensive courses with CoCoA tutorials:
- Lorenzo Robbiano: Sets of Points and Mathematical Models (tutor: Maria-Laura Torrente)
- Winfried Bruns: Algorithms for toric geometry (tutor: TBA)
The tutors and assistants will be able to provide help for participants in the use of the computer algebra system CoCoA. Students who own laptops are encouraged to bring them for use during the tutorials.
Those wishing to participate in the School should submit a letter of application to either Lorenzo Robbiano or Anna M. Bigatti by 31 March 2013. For more information see the School web page.
A summer school on Algebraic Statistics will be held 17-21 June, in Nordfjordeid, Norway. More information is available at the following website.

HH^4, the fourth conference on Hochschild (Co-)Homology
August 12-16, 2013 – Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, Universidad de Buenos
Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina
The conference “HH^4 Conference on Hochschild Cohomology” will be held in
the campus of Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, Universidad de Buenos Aires,
in Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 12–16th. The conference will be the
fourth of a series including Leicester 2003, Banff 2007 and Luminy 2010.It
will give an opportunity for interactions among mathematicians from
different fields who use or explore Hochschild cohomology. Participants
will have the chance to get new insights into known results, explain
questions pertinent to their area to nonspecialists, to consult with
experts from other areas, and so prepare the ground for the transfer of
ideas and new discoveries that would be difficult to obtain in isolation.
It will feature talks by:
- Yang Han
- Ibrahim Assem
- Dag Madsen
- Julia Pevtsova
- Rachel Taillefer
- Eduardo Marcos
- Estanislao Herscovich
- Gilles Halbout
- Mariano Suarez-Alvarez
- Guillermo Cortiñas
- Luchezar Avramov

- Max Karoubi
- Thierry Lambre
- Petter Andreas Bergh
- Ragnar-Olaf Buchweitz
- Maria Julia Redondo
- Nicole Snashall
- Andrea Solotar
Local organizing committee:
- Sergio Chouhy
- Estanislao Herscovich
- Mariano Suárez-Alvarez
