URiCA-KUMUNUjr 2020 April 25th, 2020

The ninth annual URiCA(pronounced like eureka)-KUMUNUjr conference will be on April 25-26, 2020, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Inspired by the success of the KUMUNU commutative algebra conferences (KU, MU, NU) KUMUNUjr brought together graduate students and postdocs studying commutative algebra in the midwest, a term that now stretches from Utah to Michigan and North Dakata to Texas, to share their research and expertise while building lasting collaborations and friendships. Upcoming Researchers in Commutative Algebra, URiCA, is the next page of KUMUNUjr. We want to continue our mission to promote interaction among junior researchers, graduate students and postdocs, while branching outside our initial triad. The funding for this conference is pending.

Macaulay2 workshop, Cleveland State University May 11th, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

We are organizing a Macaulay2 workshop at Cleveland State University in Cleveland, OH from Monday, May 11, 2020 through Friday, May 15, 2020 (with Sunday, May 10 and Saturday, May 16 serving as travel dates).

The purpose of the workshop is to bring Macaulay2 developers together with those who would like to share or develop their skills at writing packages for Macaulay2 and those interested in developing the corresponding mathematical algorithms. We welcome participants with a broad range of experience with Macaulay2, from novices to the very experienced. Participants will form groups and work together on writing code and packages for Macaulay2. In addition to the group work, we plan to provide tutorials on Macaulay2 and package development, as well as opportunities for mathematical discussions and professional development.

For more information, please visit the workshop website at, which also includes information about lodging and possible projects.

Attendance at this workshop is by invitation, based on a brief application available via the link above. All who are interested are encouraged to apply. We have applied for NSF funding and hope to provide support for travel and lodging (priority will go to graduate students, postdocs, and participants from underrepresented communities). If you wish to apply for this kind of support, we ask that you submit your application by February 15, 2020.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us (email addresses below).

Best regards,

Unexpected and Asymptotic Properties of Algebraic Varieties (BrianFest) May 15th, 2020

There will be a conference “Unexpected and Asymptotic Properties of Algebraic Varieties.” (aka BrianFest) which will focus on interpolation problems in algebraic geometry and asymptotic invariants of homogeneous ideals. The conference will also celebrate Brian Harbourne’s work in this area as he celebrates his 65th birthday.

The conference will take place May 15-17, 2020 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The following people have already agreed to speak at the conference:

  • Cristiano Bocci (University of Siena)
  • Eloísa Grifo (University of California Riverside)
  • Juan Migliore (University of Notre Dame)
  • Uwe Nagel (University of Kentucky)
  • Tomasz Szemberg (Pedagogical Institute of Cracow)

More information can be found at the web page for the conference.

A second announcement with more details will appear in the new year.

Purity, Approximation Theory and Spectra, Cetraro, Italy May 18th, 2020

There will be a workshop on “Purity, Approximation Theory and Spectra” at Grand Hotel San Michele in Cetraro, Italy, 18-22 May 2020.

Purity and approximation theory influence a wide range of areas in mathematics including model theory of modules, silting and tilting theory, cotorsion pairs and abelian model structures and many more. Moreover, related classification problems in abelian and triangulated categories are strongly connected with spaces such as Ziegler spectra and prime spectra. We aim to bring together experts and young researchers with an interest in these topics to share their different viewpoints and approaches.

The workshop will include five mini lecture series introducing a range of fundamental topics, and contributed talks. There will also be opportunities for PhD students to present short talks introducing their research topics. Funding is available for a limited number of PhD students.

Lecture series speakers:

  • Sergio Estrada, University of Murcia
  • Lorna Gregory, University of Campania
  • Ivo Herzog, Ohio State University
  • Henning Krause, University of Bielefeld
  • Jan Saroch, Charles University, Prague

Tropical Geometry, Valladolid (Spain) May 25th, 2020

International school on Tropical Geometry

This school is organized by the IMUVA-Mathematics Research Institute of the University of Valladolid (Spain) in May, 25th-29th, 2020. The main objective of is to offer to future and young researchers of distinct branches of mathematics a series of courses at doctorate level on a new field connected to many areas. There will be an introductory course with minimal prerequisites and two courses on recent applications in different areas. The three courses are aimed to be as self-contained as possible in order to make the school attractive to a wide and diverse audience.

The target audience is master’s students, PhD students and postdocs from all areas of mathematics. Senior researchers interested in learning on this new topic are also welcome. The school is based on three courses organized in an exercise-based format (1 hour of lecture + 40 minutes of exercises for each session). We will also give the opportunity to young researchers to present their own work either through a series of short communications or a poster session.

The speakers, TAs and topics of the three courses are:

– Introduction to tropical geometry
Lecturer: Diane Maclagan (University of Warwick, UK)
TAs: Sara Lamboglia (Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität, Germany) and Marta Panizzut (TU Berlin, Germany)

– Introduction to tropical ideals
Lecturer: Felipe Rincón (Queen Mary University of London, UK)
TAs: Sara Lamboglia and Marta Panizzut

– Tropical approach to singular points and its connections to Nagata’s conjecture and linear codes
Lecturer/TA: Nikita Kalinin (National Research University Higher School of Economics in St. Petersburg and University of St. Petersburg, Russia)

There will be grants covering accommodation for some of the young participants (master and PhD students, postdocs). The number of grants will depend on the financial support that we get, we will try to give as many grants as we can. Candidates will be selected under the supervision of the School’s Scientific Committee and young women will be given priority. Registration and application for a grant will be available soon.

Important dates:
– Submission deadline and grant application: 13th of March, 2020.
– Notification of acceptance on contributions and grants: 22th of March, 2020.
– Early registration until: 31th of March, 2020.
