CA+, Minnesota September 22nd, 2017

CA+ is a mini-conference hosted jointly by Minnesota and Wisconsin. We highlight work in commutative algebra and related fields like algebraic geometry, number theory, combinatorics, and more. We have colloquium-style talks targeted at a broad audience of people interested in algebra.

This year’s meeting is September 22-23 at University of Minnesota. We will have 6 talks, starting on the afternoon of Friday, Sept 22 and going through Saturday, Sept 23. We also have targeted small group conversations related to research and/or professional development. This year’s speakers are Lauren Williams (Berkeley), Emily Witt (Kansas), Jay Yang (Wisconsin), Alexander Yong (UIUC), and two more to be confirmed.

See our webpage:

where you’ll find the schedule and information about registration.

In past years we’ve had NSF funding, and if this continues, we plan to fund a number graduate students and postdocs. So if you’re interested in attending please fill out the registration ASAP!

AMS Sectional, Orlando September 23rd, 2017

Route 81 2017 October 14th, 2017

The 27th annual Route 81 conference on commutative algebra and algebraic geometry will be held at Cornell, in Ithaca NY, on Saturday, October 14, 2017. The organizers are Irena Peeva and Mike Stillman. For more information, see the conference web page.

KUMUNU 2017, Kansas October 21st, 2017

KUMUNU (which is named for its original participating institutions: the University of Kansas, University of Missouri-Columbia, and University of Nebraska-Lincoln) has been an annual conference for commutative algebraists in the Great Plains region since 1999. It has evolved into a conference involving not only commutative algebra but many different fields where commutative algebra has found applications and inspirations.

This year KUMUNU 2017 will be held at the University of Kansas, in Snow Hall 120, on October 21-22, 2017. The conference will also include a poster session for postdocs and graduate students.

The conference will provide lodging for as many participants as possible. In accordance with NSF guidelines, funds will be prioritized to support participants who have no other federal support and participants who are students, post-doctoral scholars, or members of groups that are under-represented in the mathematical sciences.

Rings and Factorizations, Graz, 2018 February 19th, 2017

From February 19th to 23rd, 2018 a Conference on Rings and Factorizations will be organized at the Institute of Mathematics and Scientific Computing at the University of Graz in Graz, Austria.

The conference continues a series of ring theory conferences in Graz from 2012, 2014, and 2016.

The main subjects include:

  • Multiplicative ideal theory: ideal and module systems, star and semistar operations,
  • Dedekind, Prüfer, Krull, and Mori rings and their generalizations,
  • Rings of integer-valued polynomials,
  • Topological aspects in rings theory,
  • Factorization theory in rings and semigroups,
  • Direct-sum decomposition of modules.
