COCOA’s Fourth International School on Computer Algebra will take place at Corte Rosada Hotel in Porto Conte, Italy (near Alghero, Sardinia), 23-26 May, 2005.
The usual COCOA meeting will not follow the School. Instead, this year, the international meeting on computer algebra, MEGA05 will immediately follow the School, in the same location. MEGA will begin in the afternoon of May 27.
There will be two Courses and one Mini-Course:
- Course 1: Juan Migliore, University of Notre Dame (8:30 – 10:30 am, Mon.-Thursday morning), “Experiments in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry”. (With tutorials by Martin Kreuzer)
- Course 2: Serkan Hosten, San Francisco State University (11:00-13:00, Mon.-Thursday morning), “The Combinatorics of Syzygies”. (With tutorials by Anna Bigatti)
- Mini-Course: John Abbott, University of Genoa (Thursday afternoon), “Modular methods in CoCoA”.
There is space in the school for at most 18 participants, who should currently be enrolled in a doctoral programme somewhere in the world or be recent postdoctoral fellows. All students who are accepted for admission to the School will receive a scholarship which will cover some of the expenses associated with their participation. Please see the web page for the School for more information, including instructions for how to apply. For further information, contact one of the organizers, Anthony Geramita or Lorenzo Robbiano.
