Second Announcement: First De Brun Workshop on Computational Algebra 

>From July 21 to August 1, 2008, the De Brun Centre for Computational
Algebra at NUI Galway, Ireland, runs a workshop consisting of the
following four 5-lecture courses.

    * Gerhard Hiss (Aachen):   
        Computational Representation Theory

    * John McKay (Concordia): 
        The sporadic groups - past, present and possible future

    * Mike Stillman (Cornell): 
        Computing cohomology in algebraic  geometry

    * Bernd Sturmfels (Berkeley):
        Tropical Algebra

The lecture courses are aimed at mathematicians with a general
interest in computational aspects of algebra, but who don't
necessarily have expertise in the topics of the courses. 

Lecture courses will take place in the mornings, and participants will
have the opportunity to contribute talks on their research in the
afternoons.  The first lecture will be at 10am on Tuesday 22 July, and
the last lecture will end at 12.30 on Friday 1 August.  There will be
a Workshop trip to the Burren, Co. Clare in the first week, and to the
Galway Races in the second week.  There will be no lectures on the
Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

The workshop is supported by Science Foundation Ireland.  Some funding
towards the cost of accommodation is available for a limited number of
graduate students and postdocs.

There is no registration fee.  For registration details and further
information see:


If you wish to attend the workshop you should e-mail the organisers
as soon as possible.
