Fields Inst. Semester on Computer Algebra July 1st, 2015

The Fields Institute in Toronto, Ontario, will host a semester-long Thematic Program in Computer Algebra in Fall 2015.

The thematic program focuses on current and emerging areas of importance in computer algebra: symbolic linear algebra, algorithms for algebraic and semi-algebraic geometry, hybrid symbolic-numeric computing, algorithms for differential algebra and symbolic combinatorics, and the area of computer-enhanced mathematical collaboration and certified algorithms.

The December workshop on Algebra, Geometry, and Symbolic Proofs may be of particular interest to readers.

More information will be available on the webpage for the program.

Summer Research Institute 2015, Salt Lake City July 13th, 2015

The forty-fifth Summer Research Institute, sponsored by the American Mathematical Society and organized in collaboration with the Clay Mathematics Institute, will be devoted to algebraic geometry and will be held at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, July 13-31, 2015.

The goal of the three-week institute is to review major achievements in and around algebraic geometry in the past decade, and bring the attendants to the forefront of the relevant subjects. The three weeks will be roughly focused respectively on

  1. analytic methods, birational geometry and classification, commutative algebra and computational geometry, Hodge theory, singularities, and characteristic p methods.
  2. derived algebraic geometry, derived categories, geometric representation theory, Gromov-Witten and Donaldson-Thomas theories, mirror symmetry, tropical geometry.
  3. p-adic Hodge theory, rational points and Diophantine problems, arithmetic fundamental groups, topology of algebraic varieties, cycles, and cohomology theories.

The institute will be generally modeled on the 2005 Summer Research Institute held at the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, with plenary lecture series in the mornings, and parallel seminar series in the afternoons.

For more information about the Summer Institute, including the list of speakers and information about registration, please go to the institute webpage.

Registration deadline: January 15, 2015.

Homological Algebra in Kentucky July 22nd, 2015

International Conference in Homological Algebra

July 22-24, 2015

University of Kentucky

Lexington, KY

The aim is to cover recent developments and applications of the homological methods in areas such as Commutative and Non commutative Algebra, Model Category Theory, and Algebraic Geometry. The conference will include one day honoring Professor Edgar Enochs’ career.

Midwest Commutative Algebra Conference August 3rd, 2015

There will be a conference at Purdue University titled “Midwest Commutative Algebra Conference.’’ It will be held  from Monday, August 3, through Friday, August 7, 2015. This meeting is in the tradition of Midwest Algebra and Geometry Conferences. The topic of the conference are recent advances in Commutative Algebra and its intersection with Algebraic Geometry, with particular emphasis on characteristic p methods, multiplicity theory, multiplier ideals, free resolutions, local cohomology, and the homological conjectures.

There will be a poster session to give junior mathematicians and graduate students an opportunity to present their work.  Junior mathematicians and graduate students are particularly encouraged to participate in the conference, as well as mathematicians from traditionally underrepresented groups and faculty of undergraduate institutions. The deadline for being considered for financial support is July 1, 2015.

More details may be found on the website of the conference:

SIAM Appl. Algebraic Geometry, Korea August 3rd, 2015

There will be a SIAM Conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry (AG15), August 3-7, 2015, in Daejeon, South Korea. The conference is sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Algebraic Geometry.

For more information, see the web page for the Conference.

Kaiserslautern: Singularities August 3rd, 2015

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.
