Graduate Student Meeting on Applied Algebra and Combinatorics

The meeting is addressed to PhD students, recent graduates and post-docs working in Applied Algebra and/or Combinatorics. We strongly encourage all interested students to participate actively and give a talk.
NEW! See ourĀ poster here.


The meeting will take place from 22.03. to 24.03.2018. A precise schedule will appear at the end of January.

Keynote speakers

  • Christos Athanasiadis, University of Athens
  • Bernard Mourrain, Inria Sophia Antipolis


The aim of the meeting is to bring together PhD students working in some area associated with Applied Algebra and/or Combinatorics and to encourage an active interaction and networking among them.

Topics of interest cover a wide spectrum of areas of research such as

  • Combinatorial and Computational Commutative Algebra
  • Topological Combinatorics
  • Algebraic and Discrete Geometry
  • Tensor Methods
  • Algebraic Statistics

and the possible interplay between these subjects as well as applications in other areas of science.

The first two days will be opened by an introductory 60 minutes talk (plus 10 minutes of questions) by a keynote speaker. The rest of the schedule is dedicated to 40-minute talks by PhD students and recent graduates. We are also planning a poster session.

Organizers & Scientific Committee

The scientific committee consists of Dinh Van Le (head) and the organizers.


Please register here. There is no workshop fee. Note that the deadline for title and abstract submission for talks, as well as funding, is January the 19th. We will get back to you by the end of January. After that date you can still register for participation and poster presentation.

There is limited funding for PhD students who cannot be supported by their home institution to cover accommodation and travel costs, and preference will be given to the students who are willing to give a talk.

Recommended Accommodation

A block of rooms has been set aside at the Intour Hotel until February 20th. Mention the keyword algebra when making a reservation.
