The Upper Midwest Commutative Algebra Colloquium will be held on November 14, 2015. This conference is being created with two main goals in mind:

1. To showcase the depth and breadth of research connected to commutative algebra;

2. To build a regional community among faculty and students across algebraic disciplines and between our two institutions.

The Third EACA International School on Computer Algebra and its Applications will take place at the Faculty of Mathematics and IMUS (University Institute of Mathematics Research) of the University of Seville (Spain) on January 18th-21th, 2016.

It is an activity of the Spanish network Red-EACA, Red Temática de Cálculo Simbólico, Álgebra Computacional y Aplicaciones, partially supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, under the Acciones de Dinamización “Redes de Excelencia” MTM2014-56142-REDT.

The First and Second EACA School on Computer Algebra and its Applications were held in Tenerife (Canary Islands) in 2011 and in Valladolid in 2013.

This School intends to provide an opportunity for young researchers (namely, Master and PhD students and Postdocs) in Computer Algebra and Symbolic Computation or in its Applications from all over the world, to learn from three internationally recognized lecturers, about recent developments on the area. The School also welcomes experienced researchers interested in these topics.

The School will consist on three courses (lectures and tutorials) by experts plus short contributed talks and poster presentations by young researchers. Submissions will be supervised by the School’s Scientific Committee.

The conference will be held on the occasion of Juan Migliore’s 60th birthday and will take place at the University of Notre Dame from May 16 to May 19, 2016. We plan to start the talks in the morning of Monday, May 16, and finish Thursday afternoon, May 19.

This meeting is in the tradition of Midwest Algebra and Geometry Conferences. The topics of the conference are recent advances in Commutative Algebra and its intersection with Algebraic Geometry, with particular emphasis on liaison theory, combinatorial commutative algebra, Hilbert functions, free resolutions, characteristic p methods, multiplicity theory, multiplier ideals, and local cohomology.

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.

More information will be posted when it is available.

The organizers of the conference are:

Uwe Nagel

Claudia Polini

Bernd Ulrich

The Fields Institute in Toronto, Ontario, will host a semester-long program in Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry in Fall 2016.

This semester-long program will focus on the topics in algebraic geometry with deep combinatorial connections. These will include, but are not limited to, Hilbert schemes, moduli spaces, Okounkov bodies, Schubert varieties, toric varieties, and tropical geometry.

There will be three programmatic workshops: an introductory workshop in August, a workshop on “Convexity in Algebraic Geometry” in October, and a workshop on “Combinatorial Moduli Spaces and Intersection Theory” in December. There will also be a graduate summer school in Summer 2016.

Applications for long-term visiting positions will be due in December 2015.

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