We are pleased to announce that the seventh International School on
Computer Algebra: COCOA 2011
will take place in June 6-10 2011
at Fakultät für Informatik und Mathematik
The main sponsor of the school is
Shell Global Solutions International B.V.
The school will be held the week after
(May 30 - June
3), Stockholm, Sweden.
Following the very successful format we have used for the previous
schools, there will be two intensive courses with CoCoA tutorials:
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 30 participants, who should
enrolled in a doctoral programme somewhere in the world or be recent
fellows. All students who are accepted for admission to the School will
receive a scholarship which will cover the expenses for
bed & breakfast at the Rotelinn Hotel and lunches Monday
to Friday at the University mensa.
Those wishing to participate in the School should submit a
letter of application
The Letter of Application should include the applicant's CV as well as
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 are evaluated on a continuous basis up to
20th April, 2011
and the final decisions about
scholarships will be made before the end of April by the Organizing
Committee (A. Bigatti, M. Kreuzer, L. Robbiano).
Information about costs, accommodations, method of payment, etc. will
come in the next announcement.
The local organizer is Martin Kreuzer.
