From Anton Leykin:
We would like to announce the upcoming workshop: SageMath and Macaulay2 – An Open Source Initiative, to be held at the IMA in Minneapolis on July 22-26, 2019.
This meeting will bring together developers from the Macaulay2 and Sage communities to discuss, design, and implement new algorithms and computational tools that will be of use to scientists and industry professionals. All software developed during the workshop will be made freely available as part of the open-source mathematics software systems Macaulay2 and SageMath. Themes of the workshop include algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, representation theory, combinatorics, and optimization. The workshop will include talks on target features and the logistics of Macaulay2 and Sage development, as well as working groups on a variety of participant-driven themes.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out the Program Application available at the top of the page here: https://www.ima.umn.edu/2018-2019/SW7.22-26.19/# Funding preference will be given to graduate students and early career researchers. The deadline to be considered for funding is Friday, May 3.
In your personal statement, please indicate your interest in participating in any of the coding projects listed here (https://wiki.sagemath.org/days99) and/or propose your own project for others to join.
