There will be a semester-long research program called “IRTATCA: Interactions between Representation Theory, Algebraic Topology and Commutative Algebra” at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica in Barcelona, Spain, January 7 to June 30, 2015.
From the program description:
The main focus of this research program will be on the interaction between algebraic topology, commutative algebra, and representation theory. The underlying theme is the use of homological algebra; it serves as a common language making interaction possible and fruitful. This involves, for instance, the use of derived and triangulated categories, and methods from homotopy theory.
The goal of the program is to facilitate broader, and deeper, interaction between researchers from these different fields. To this end, distinguished experts will participate in this program, teaching advanced courses on subjects of current interest. Further activities include workshops and regular seminars, with specific emphasis on opportunities for young researchers to learn new ideas and techniques.
In addition to a weekly seminar and other possible specific working groups, there will be one or two series of one-week advanced courses devoted to several aspects of the program, followed by related workshops. They will be adequately distributed along the period of the program. A final conference is expected to be held too. Concrete dates, subjects and speakers to be announced.
For more information, see the CRM web page for the program.
The 2015 Joint Mathematics Meeting will take place in San Antonio TX, January 10 – 13 2015. There will be several sessions of interest to commalg.org readers:
- AMS Special Session on Cluster Algebras (a Mathematics Research Communities session)
- Andrew T. Carroll, DePaul University
- Ian T. Le, University of Chicago
- Greg Muller, University of Michigan
- AMS Special Session on Factorization Theory and Its Applications
- Nicholas Baeth, University of Central Missouri
- Scott Chapman, Sam Houston State University
- Jim Coykendall, Clemson University
- Alfred Geroldinger, Karl Franzens University
- AMS Special Session on Syzygies
- Giulio Caviglia, Purdue University
- Jason McCullough, Rider University
- Irena Peeva, Cornell University
The AMS will hold a “Mathematics Research Community” (MRC) on Commutative Algebra in Snowbird, Utah, from June 7 to 13, 2015.
MRCs are designed “to develop and sustain long-lasting cohorts for collaborative research projects in many areas of mathematics. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to participate. The AMS will provide a structured program to engage and guide all participants as they start their careers.”
The organizers for this MRC are
- Srikanth B. Iyengar, University of Utah
- Karl Schwede, University of Utah
- Liana Sega, University of Missouri—Kansas City
- Gregory G. Smith, Queen’s University
- Wenliang Zhang, University of Nebraska
The workshop will focus on the following topics:
- Singularities in positive characteristic
- Local cohomology and D-modules
- Methods from homotopy theory
- Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity
- Infinite free resolutions
For more information, including application procedures, see the AMS web page for the MRC.
The conference “Differential and combinatorial aspects of singularities” will be held at TU Kaiserslautern, August 3-7, 2015. From the conference website:
This conference will focus on aspects of singularity theory and complex algebraic geometry, including D-module theory, homological methods, (logarithmic) derivations and differential forms, topology of hypersurface singularities and arrangements of hyperplanes.
