Midwest Commutative Algebra Conference

There will be a conference at Purdue University titled “Midwest Commutative Algebra Conference.’’ It will be held  from Monday, August 3, through Friday, August 7, 2015. This meeting is in the tradition of Midwest Algebra and Geometry Conferences. The topics of the conference are recent advances in Commutative Algebra and its intersection with Algebraic Geometry, with particular emphasis on characteristic p methods, multiplicity theory, multiplier ideals, free resolutions, local cohomology, and the homological conjectures.

There will be a poster session to give junior mathematicians and graduate students an opportunity to present their work.  Junior mathematicians and graduate students are particularly encouraged to participate in the conference, as well as mathematicians from traditionally underrepresented groups and faculty of undergraduate institutions. The deadline for being considered for financial support is July 1, 2015.

More details may be found on the website of the conference:

update 18 June 2015: Confirmed speakers include L. Avramov, C. Berkesch, D. Cutkosky, H. Dao, S. Dutta, L. Ein, D. Erman, M. Hochster, C. Huneke, S. Kleiman, G. Lyubeznik, L. Ma, J. Madsen, J. Montano, S. Sam, H. Schenck, A. Singh, K. Tucker, and W. Zhang. The website also now has information on finding accommodations.

Google Celebrates Emmy Noether

In case you missed it, Google posted a doodle celebrating the 133rd Birthday of Emmy Noether.  It goes without saying that Emmy Noether played a prominent role in google-doodlethe development of commutative algebra, as well as other fields of mathematics. This being the case, we would like to join Google in saying happy birthday to Emmy. More information about the Doodle can be found in the following link:
