The Fall Southeastern Sectional Meeting of the AMS will be held at the University of Louisville, October 5-6, 2013 (Saturday – Sunday). This meeting will contain at least three special sessions that may be of interest to commalgists:
- Special Session on Commutative Rings, Ideals, and Modules, co-organized by Ela Celikbas and Olgur Celikbas, University of Missouri-Columbia
- Special Session on Combinatorial Commutative Algebra, co-organized by Juan Migliore, University of Notre Dame and Uwe Nagel, University of Kentucky
- Special Session on Recent Advances on Commutative Algebra and Its Applications, co-organized by Hamid Kulosman, University of Louisville, Jinjia Li, University of Louisville, and Hamid Rahmati, Miami University.
The Fall Eastern Sectional Meeting will be held at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, October 12-13, 2013 (Saturday – Sunday). This meeting will include several special sessions of potential interest to commalgists, including the following:
The Fall Central Sectional Meeting of the AMS will be held at Washington University, St. Louis, MO October 18-20, 2013 (Friday – Sunday). This meeting will include a Special Session on Commutative Algebra co-organized by Lianna Sega, University of Missouri, Kansas City and Hema Srinivasan, University of Missouri, Columbia.
The 23rd annual Route 81 Conference on Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry will be held Saturday, October 19, 2013, at Syracuse University.
If you would like to give a talk, contact the organizers and also send a title and short abstract.
There is no formal registration process, but it would be helpful if you would let one of the organizers know if you plan to attend, and whether you will be in town Friday night for dinner, so we can estimate attendance.
There will be a website soon.

UNION COLLEGE MATHEMATICS CONFERENCE
Schenectady, New York
Saturday and Sunday
October 19 – October 20, 2013
This is a preliminary announcement for the fourteenth Union College Mathematics Conference. This year the conference topics are algebraic topology, category theory, commutative algebra, differential geometry, and statistics.
In addition to invited lectures, there will also be shorter contributed talks in parallel sessions. Anyone interested in giving such a talk should contact one of the organizers.
The meeting will begin with an evening reception on Friday, October 18, and end on Sunday afternoon. More information will be available at the Union College Mathematics Department website (www.math.union.edu) in June.
Union College is centrally located in New York’s capital district about 10 miles from the Albany International Airport, easily accessible by train from NYC, and just 3 to 4 hours by car from NYC, Boston, and Montreal.
We hope to see you here in the fall!

The 2014 Joint Mathematics Meetings will be held in Baltimore, MD, January 15-18, 2014 (Wednesday – Saturday). This meeting will include an AMS Special Session on Homological and Characteristic p Methods in Commutative Algebra co-organized by Neil Epstein, George Mason University, Sean Sather-Wagstaff, North Dakota State University, and Karl Schwede, Penn State University.
The Southeastern Spring Sectional Meeting of the AMS will be held at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Knoxville, TN, March 21-23, 2014 (Friday – Sunday). This meeting will include a Special Session on Commutative Ring Theory (in honor of the retirement of David E. Dobbs) co-organized by David Anderson, University of Tennessee, Knoxville and Jay Shapiro, George Mason University.
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.
