HTCA, Genova, Italy February 9th, 2015

There will be a School on “Homology: Theoretical and Computational Aspects (HTCA)” in Genova, Italy, February 9-13, 2015.

The HTCA School is aimed at a broad audience, including PhD students, early postdocs and specialists in neighbouring areas. The school comprises three lecture courses with tutorials, and talks. The courses will be held by Herbert Edelsbrunner, Bruno Benedetti and Massimo Ferri.

Some financial support may be available for graduate students and early postdocs. Please register online at before the deadline 15th December.

The school is jointly organized by the Department of Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Robotics and Systems Engineering (DIBRIS) and by the Department of Mathematics (DIMA) of the University Genova.

MRC 2015, Snowbird UT June 7th, 2015

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:

  1. Singularities in positive characteristic
  2. Local cohomology and D-modules
  3. Methods from homotopy theory
  4. Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity
  5. Infinite free resolutions

For more information, including application procedures, see the AMS web page for the MRC.

AMS-EMS-SPM, Porto June 10th, 2015

The joint meeting of the American Mathematical Society, the European Mathematical Society, and the Soceidad Portuguesa de Matemática, in Porto, Portugal (10-13 June of 2015) will host several special sessions in Algebra and Geometry.

There will be two sessions in Commutative Algebra are entitled “Commutative Artinian Algebras and Their Deformations” and “Homological and Combinatorial Commutative Algebra”, and organized by Anthony Iarrobino (Northeastern University), Pedro Macias Marques (Universidade de Évora), Maria Evelina Rossi (Università degli Studi di Genova), Inês B. Henriques (University of Sheffield), Lars Winther Christensen (Texas Tech University) and Maria Vaz Pinto (Universidade de Lisboa).
