XX School of Mathematics Lluís Santaló 2019: p-Adic Analysis, Arithmetic and Singularities

This summer school that will take place at the Peninsula de la Magdalena (Riancho) in Universidad Internacional Menendez Pelayo (UIMP), Santander, Spain, on June, 24th-28th 2019.

The school aims to provide an introduction to a very dynamic area of research that lies at the intersection of number theory, p-adic analysis, algebraic geometry and singularity theory. The backbone of the meeting consists of four introductory mini-courses:

1. Introduction to motivic Poincaré series (Sabir M. Gusein-Zade, Russia)

2. Introduction to the singularities of plane curves (Francisco J. Monserrat, Spain)

3. Introduction to local zeta functions (Willem Veys, Belgium)

4. Introduction to p-adic analysis (W. A. Zúñiga-Galindo, Mexico)

To register and/or find more information, please visit our website

The UIMP is offering some complete grants (and also some partial grants) for students at the School.

Best wishes,

The organisers

Applications of Computer Algebra (ACA) in Montréal July 16th, 2019

From Michel Beaudin:

The 25th Conference on Applications of Computer Algebra (ACA) will be held in Montréal, Canada: .

This event will take place from Tuesday July 16th to Saturday July 20th, 2019 at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS).

The ACA conference series is devoted to promoting computer algebra applications as well as foster interaction and exchange among developers of computer algebra systems with researchers and users. The latter are mostly scientists, engineers, educators and mathematicians. The topics covered during the conference include, but are not limited to, the use of computer algebra in sciences, engineering, communication, medicine, pure and applied mathematics, education, business and computer science.

The special session ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY FROM AN ALGORITHMIC POINT OF VIEW (organizers: Cristina Bertone and Francesca Cioffi) will surely interest the commutative algebra community

SageMath and Macaulay2 – An Open Source Initiative July 22nd, 2019

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: 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 ( and/or propose your own project for others to join.
