Barcelona: EACA 2014

The “Encuentros de Álgebra Computacional y Aplicaciones, EACA” (Meetings on Computer Algebra and Applications) are organized by the Spanish Red Temática de Cálculo Simbólico, Álgebra Computacional y Aplicaciones to provide a meeting frame for researchers in the fields of Computer Algebra and Symbolic Computation, and for those who use these techniques in their research.
This XIV Meeting (biannual since 2002) is the natural continuation of those organized in Santander (1995), Sevilla (1996), Granada (1997), Sigüenza (1998) , Tenerife (1999), Barcelona (2000) , Ezcaray (2001) , Valladolid (2002), Santander (2004), Sevilla (2006), Granada (2008), Santiago de Compostela (2010), and Alcalá de Henares (2012).
We emphasize and specially favor the participation of young researchers.
EACA 2014 will take place in Barcelona, at the Institut d’Estudis Catalans from June 18th to 20th, 2014.

Chicago: positive characteristic

Positive Characteristic Algebraic Geometry Workshop
March 21 – 23, 2014 at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)
Organized by Zsolt Patakfalvi, Karl Schwede, and Kevin Tucker
Description: This workshop, aimed at graduate students and young postdocs, will expose participants to the use of Frobenius in the study of local singularities and global higher dimensional geometry in positive characteristic. We hope to incorporate a mix of introductory talks and problem sessions in groups, and will focus on presenting a number of open questions with sufficient background to be worked on both during and after the workshop.
The funding for this workshop comes from a National Science Foundation Research Training Grant (DMS 1246844).
Important Dates/Information:
Limited funding for travel and lodging is available — to apply, simply indicate that funding is needed when submitting the registration form on this website. The deadline for consideration for funding is February 1.
Participants should plan to arrive in Chicago in the afternoon on Friday, March 21, and the first session of the workshop will be on Friday evening. The workshop will conclude with lunch on Sunday, and participants can plan to depart from Chicago in the afternoon on Sunday, March 23.
