MEGA 2007

Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry

Strobl, Austria, June 25th - 29th


General Information

MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry (and its equivalent in Italian, French, Spanish, German, Russian), a series of roughly biannual conferences on computational and application aspects of Algebraic Geometry and related topics, with very high standards. Previous meetings were held in 1990 (Castiglioncello, Italy), 1992 (Nice, France), 1994 (Santander, Spain), 1996 (Eindhoven, Nederlands), 1998 (Malo, France), 2000 (Bath, UK), 2003 (Kaiserslautern, Germany) and 2005 (Alghero, Italy).

Proceedings containing a selection of the papers and invited talks presented at previous conferences have been published by Birkhäuser in the series Progress in Mathematics (volumes 94, 109, 143), by the Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra (volumes 1 17, 118, 139, 164), and by the Journal of Symbolic Computation (volume 39/3-4 and one double issue to appear). We plan to publish selected papers from the conference in a special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation.

MEGA 2007 was held at the bifeb (a center for adult education) in "Strobl am Wolfgangsee", Austria, from June 24 to 30, 2007. As a special attraction there was an excursion and a conference dinner on "Schafbergspitze" (at the height of 1783m).

Conference Topics

Effective Methods and Theoretical and Practical Complexity Issues in: Commutative Algebra, Geometry, Real Geometry, Algebraic Number Theory, Algebraic Geometry, Arithmetic Geometry and related fields: Algebraic Analysis of Differential Equations, Differential Geometry, Associative Algebras, Group Theory, Algebraic Groups and Lie Algebras, Algebraic and Differential Topology, as well as applications in these fields.
