From the organizers:
It is a pleasure to inform you about the conference
Commutative Algebra and Singularity Theory, 2014.
It will be from July 28 to August 1, 2014 at Tateyama Kokusai Hotel (http://www.tatekoku.com/) in Toyama, which is about 150 miles north-west of Tokyo. This conference will be celebrating the retirement of Professor Kei-ichi Watanabe from his university activities. Please visit the following URL
for further information. You need registration to secure your hotel reservation, which will be available via the above webpage from October 1, 2013.
We hope you will be able to join us and contribute with your expertise to the success of the meeting.
Looking forward to seeing you in Toyama,
From September 22nd to 26th, 2014 a conference on Arithmetic and Ideal Theory of Rings and Semigroups will be organized at the Institute of Mathematics and Scientific Computing at the University of Graz in Graz, Austria. There will be a one-day special session dedicated to the 70th birthday of Franz Halter-Koch.

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.
