International Workshop in Combinatorial Algebra
Honoring The Contributions of Luzius Grunenfelder and Tony Geramita
June 1 – 4, 2013
Dalhousie University/Saint Mary's University
The aim of this workshop is to discuss the current state of research in several interrelating areas of modern Combinatorial Algebra, with emphasis on the Combinatorics of Commutative Algebras, Groups and Hopf Algebras. The workshop is a satellite event to two special sessions of the 2013 CMS Summer Meeting, which runs from June 4 - 7. These sessions are Commutative Algebra and Combinatorics and Hopf Algebras and Tensor Categories.
The Workshop is organised by Atlantic Algebra Centre (AAC) affiliated to Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). AAC is supported by MUN and as a Collaborative Research Group by the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences. Download the poster here.
The workshop will include several 2-hour lectures, 1-hour research talks and a number of shorter research communications. If you would like to participate or give a talk in this workshop, please send an email to email@example.com by April 1, 2013.
