MEGA 2011

Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry
Stockholm, Sweden, May 30 – June 3, 2011
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), 2007 (Strobl, Austria), and 2009 (Barcelona, Spain). As in previous conferences, we plan to publish selected papers from the conference 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, by the Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra, and the three last editions by the Journal of Symbolic Computation.
MEGA 2011 will be held at the University of Stockholm, Sweden.
Submissions should contain recent original research relevant to the topics of the conference, under the form of an Extended Abstract.
The Extended Abstracts should be at least four pages long (plus bibliography) and should contain detailed results, an outline of the proofs and all of the main ideas. Submitted contributions to this conference or related material could be submitted to another conference or journal. Material not submitted simultaneously elsewhere might be given priority.
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.
There will be future calls for Short Communications, Software Demonstrations and Posters.
The submission page will be available at starting on January 3, 2011.
