Length 3 Resolutions

There will be a Workshop on “The Structure of Length 3 Resolutions”, August 19-23, 2019 at the University of California-San Diego. The topic is structure theorems for finite free resolutions, especially the length 3 case, following recent work of Jerzy Weyman. The goal is to introduce the subject at the graduate student level.
The workshop is organized by Steven Sam (UCSD). The main speakers are Jerzy Weyman (UConn), Lars Christensen (Texas Tech), and Oana Veliche (Northeastern).
There travel and lodging support for students and young researchers. Please use the registration form on the workshop web page if you are interested in attending.

Third Research School on Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry (RSCAAG): Applied Algebraic Geometry, Zanjan, Iran

SageMath and Macaulay2 – An Open Source Initiative

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.
