Description
This workshop is about computational commutative algebra understood in a broad sense, including both theory and its practice in fields related to commutative algebra, such as combinatorics, algebraic geometry, group theory and their applications. It will include talks by Gert-Martin Greuel, Lorenzo Robbiano, and Michael Stillman, followed by a panel discussion on software for commutative algebra. The rest of the workshop will be in standard format, with invited lectures and time for discussions and computer explorations. Invited speakers include: Paulo Aluffi Matthias Aschenbrenner Jon Carlson Juergen Herzog Gabriela Jeronimo Gregor Kemper Vic Reiner Hal Schenck Josef Schicho Rekha Thomas
