March 21-22, 2015

at the

Department of Mathematics, University of Kansas,

organized by

Hailong Dao

This workshop, sponsored by the Department of Mathmatics and the University of Kansas, will feature talks on several emerging topics in commutative algebra/algebraic geometry and plenty of discussion among participants. Some previous versions can be found here.

Location: Department of Mathematics, University of Kansas. The talks will be held at 306 Snow Hall.

Speakers and schedule : (here are the abstracts )

The talks will be from Saturday morning to Sunday morning, with possibly two informal discussion sessions on Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. Everyone is welcome to attend. However, we have only very limited funding left. Please email if you are interested in participating.
