ICUB The Research Institute of the University of Bucharest, the Institute of Mathematics "Simion Stoilow" of the Romanian Academy, the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Bucharest, and The Romanian Mathematical Society will organize the 25th National School on Algebra, September 4 - September 8, 2017, Bucharest, Romania.
The conference aims at introducing students and young researchers to new areas of research in the topic of the school, at the interplay of (combinatorial) commutative algebra with algebraic geometry, homological algebra, modular invariant theory, computational algebra. For this purpose we plan to offer three integrated courses where the theoretical developments are directly motivated by topics from the above mentioned fields. This activity will be complemented by informal tutorial sessions, computer demos, and problem sessions lead by senior participants, where the audience has the chance to ask questions and discuss aspects of the material.
The three main courses, each consisting of three one-hour lectures, will be delivered by Marian Aprodu (IMAR & University of Bucharest, Romania), Enrico Sbarra (Universita degli Studi di Pisa, Italy) and Mufit Sezer (Bilkent University, Turkey). Marian Aprodu will discuss about syzygies with the book of D. Eisenbud "Geometry of Syzygies" as background material, Enrico Sbarra will focus on Generic Initial Ideals with the book of J. Herzog and T. Hibi "Monomial Ideals" as background material, while Mufit Sezer will introduce us to Modular Invariant Theory having as background the book of E. Campbell and D. Wehlau "Modular Invariant Theory".
Authors willing to participate at the conference with a contributory talk are encouraged to send a title and an abstract of their contribution of at most 1 page, by July 20th, 2017. The title and abstract should be sent to the email address of the contact person (firstname.lastname@example.org). The final schedule of the conference will be posted mid-August, 2017.
Arrival day is Sunday, September 3rd. Lectures will take place from Monday, September 4th, to Friday, September 8th, between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm. Unfortunately, there are no funds available either for travel support or local expenses.
