Women in Commutative Algebra 2019
An intensive research workshop hosted by the Banff International Research Station
Workshop Information

The Women in Commutative Algebra (WICA) 2019 workshop will take place from October 20-25, 2019 at the Banff International Research Station (BIRS) in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The workshop will run from Monday morning to mid-day the following Friday; BIRS expects participants to arrive in the afternoon or evening of the Sunday and to depart on Friday afternoon. BIRS will provide lodging and meals for all participants, and the organizers plan to apply for external funding that may provide travel support.


Forty-two researchers will collaborate in small groups on cutting edge topics in commutative algebra. The participants will range from early-career mathematicians to senior leaders in the field. All participants should hold their Ph.D. by October 2019.


The major goal of this workshop is to advance commutative algebra by producing first-rate research of broad interest. In addition, the workshop will also promote, and develop, research networks among women algebraists. Please look here for more information on an emerging network of women in commutative algebra.


WICA is partially supported by NSF-HRD 1500481 - AWM ADVANCE grant
