The Institute of Mathematics of the University of Tartu in collaboration with Estonian Doctoral School in Mathematics and Statistics will organize the workshop
This annual spring workshop has traditionally attracted mathematicians interested in various areas of algebra such as universal algebra, semigroup theory, group theory, lattice theory, category theory and linear algebra. Also, we always welcome talks on applications of algebra in other disciplines, such as computer science, topology, geometry etc.
The website of the workshop is at http://math.ut.ee/~vlaan/kaariku/ . The working language of the workshop is English.
All participants will be offered an opportunity to present a 25-minutes talk or a 50-minutes talk. Those who wish to give a talk are asked to send us the abstract prepared using this template file. For a presentation, it is possible to use a laptop computer with a projector, or a whiteboard.
The workshop will take place at the Holiday Center of Piusa Valley (http://www.puhkemaja.ee/) in South-East Estonia, a region called Setomaa, in Väiko-Härmä village. This is about 100 km from Tartu. The event starts in Friday afternoon and ends at Sunday noon. The transportation between Tartu and the Holiday Center will be arranged by the organizers.
There is no participation fee for the workshop. The cost of accommodation (for 2 nights, including breakfast) is 38 euros. Unfortunately, it will not be very easy to arrange single accommodation, but if you have such a wish, please let us know in advance. The costs of PhD students of the doctoral school and their supervisors are covered by the doctoral school. It may happen that we are also able to cover the meals and accommodation of some other guests.
Please let us know if you wish to participate in the workshop by sending us by e-mail the registration form below, and also please feel free to inform your possibly interested colleagues or students about the workshop. The deadline for registration and sending an abstract is April 8. For further information please contact vlaan at ut ee or kaarli at ut ee .
Finally, let us draw your attention to the fact that on September 1-6, 2013, there will be a conference "Methods of Analysis and Algebra" in Tartu dedicated to centennial anniversary of Professor Gunnar Kangro, the most famous Estonian mathematician of his time. This conference will have an algebra section and we invite all algebraists to participate also in this event. The homepage is at http://kangro100.ut.ee/ .
Do you wish to give a talk? If yes, would you prefer a 25- or 50-minutes talk?
