We are pleased to announce that the eighth International School on
Computer Algebra: COCOA 2013
will take place on 10-14th June 2013
at Institut für Mathematik
The school will be held the week after
(3-7th June, Frankfurt am Main, Germany).
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
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 the expenses for
bed & breakfast.
Those wishing to participate in the School should submit a
letter of application
Anna M. Bigatti
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
31st March, 2013
and the final decisions about
scholarships will be made before the end of April by the Organizing
The scholarship has these extra condition: the successful applicant must
present a poster
(50x70 or 100x70 cm) during the school describing
his field of research
and communicate the title by the end of April 2013
The school is partly funded by:
- University of Osnabrück
- DFG SPP 1489 Experimental methods on algebra, geometry and number theory
- PRIN project
"Geometria delle Varietà Algebriche -- unità locale di Genova"
- GNSAGA - Gruppo Nazionale per le Strutture Algebriche, Geometriche e le loro Applicazioni
Information about costs, accommodations, method of payment, etc. will
come in the next announcement.
The local organizers are Elisa Fascio and Christof Söger.
We look forward to seeing you in Osnabrück this coming June. If you have
any questions, please don't hesitate to write to us.
