2nd CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
======================
MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry (and its equivalent in Italian, French, Spanish, German, Russian, etc.), a series of roughly biennial conferences on computational and application aspects of Algebraic Geometry and related topics with very high standards. Previous meetings were held in 1990 (Castiglioncello, Italy), 1992 (Nice, France), 1994 (Santander, Spain), 1996 (Eindhoven, Nederlands), 1998 (St. Malo, France), 2000 (Bath, United Kingdom), 2003 (Kaiserslautern, Germany), 2005 (Porto Conte, Italy) and 2007 (Strobl, Austria). Selected papers from the conference will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation.

Proceedings containing a selection of the papers and invited talks presented at previous Mega conferences have been published by Birkhäuser in the series Progress in Mathematics (volumes no. 94, 109 and 143), by the Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra (volumes no. 117 and 118, 139 and 164) and by the Journal of Symbolic Computation (volumes no. 39 3-4 and 42 1-2). A Special Issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation devoted to selected papers of MEGA’2007 will soon appear.

MEGA 2009 will be held at the University of Barcelona, Spain.

Submissions
———–

Submissions should contain recent original research relevant to the topics of the conference. There are two possible modes of submission:

  • Full papers with complete proofs. In this case also an abstract of two to four pages is requested.
  • Extended abstracts of at least four pages containing full results, an outline of the proofs and all of the main ideas.

Submitted contributions to this conference must not have been accepted or be under review by another conference with a published proceedings or by a journal.

Acceptance of a submitted contribution means acceptance for oral presentation only. A Call for Papers for the Conference Proceedings will be announced during (and after) the conference.

For submitting a paper, go to http://www.imub.ub.es/mega09/contributions.php and follow the instructions.

CALL FOR SOFTWARE PRESENTATIONS
=====================

Submissions of Software Presentation must describe original material concerning software experiences and development, related to the main topics of the conference, as long as there is a strong empirical/experimental component to the software being presented.

Such contribution can take the form of a case/field study, controlled experiment, original applications of existing software libraries or development of new software and systems. Originality is measured in terms of new usage of existing libraries, new experiences and original experimental results, new philosophy that generates new software as a main product, etc…

Software Demos submission will take the form of an Extended Abstract where the proposal is described according to the above requirements. The abstract should detail how the software can be obtained or executed, also for the purpose of its evaluation.For submitting see below.

CALL FOR RESEARCH COMMUNICATIONS
=======================

Research Communications must contain describe unpublished, original material concerning research announcements, ongoing research, short communications of results not submitted to the conference due to time constraints and related to the main topics of the conference. Accepted research announcements will have the possibility of displaying a poster during the poster sessions, and selected ones will be included in the conference program for a short talk. Research Communications will take the form of an Extended Abstract which will evaluated by members of the Executive Committee.
