RISC Summer 2007



We are pleased to announce that the fifth International School on Computer Algebra: COCOA 2007 will take place in June 2007 at RISC near Linz (Austria)
The school is part of the RISC Summer 2007 program, and will be held the week before MEGA07.

Following the very successful format we have used for the previous schools, there will be two intensive courses with CoCoA tutorials:

Course 1 Lorenzo Robbiano Approximate Methods in Commutative Algebra tutor: Martin Kreuzer
Course 2 Aldo Conca Betti Numbers and Generic Initial Ideals tutor: Anna Bigatti
The tutors and assistants will be able to provide help for participants in the use of the computer algebra system CoCoA. Students who own laptops are encouraged to bring them for use during the tutorials. The CoCoA system is available for installation by downloading it from the CoCoA web page.

There is space in the school for about 20 participants, who should currently be enrolled in a doctoral programme somewhere in the world or be recent postdoctoral fellows. All students who are accepted for admission to the School will receive a scholarship which will cover some of the expenses for bed&breakfast in Hagenberg. Those wishing to participate in the School should submit a LETTER OF APPLICATION to either:

Lorenzo Robbiano
Anthony Geramita or

The Letter of Application should include the applicant's CV as well as the applicant's reasons for wanting to take part in the school. There should also be included the (email) address of one mathematician who can act as referee for the application.

Applications should be submitted by (extended deadline) 17th MARCH, 2007 and the final decisions about scholarships will be made before the end of March by the Organizing Committee (A. Bigatti, A. Geramita, L. Robbiano). Information about costs, accommodations, method of payment, etc. will come in the next announcement.

We look forward to seeing you in Hagenberg Castle this coming June. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to write to us.
