We are organizing a Macaulay2 workshop, from Monday 23 May to Thursday 26 May 2016 with Sunday 22 May and Friday 27 May serving as travel days. Activities will start first thing Monday morning. The workshop will be at the University of Warwick, UK. This is the second European Macaulay2 workshop.
The purpose of the workshop is to bring Macaulay2 developers together with those who would like to share or develop their skills at writing packages for Macaulay2 and those interested in developing the corresponding mathematical algorithms. We are interested in participants with a broad range of experience with Macaulay2, from very experienced to novices. The novices will have the opportunity to learn about Macaulay2 from the more experienced participants.
Some examples of projects from past workshops can be viewed by looking through the Macaulay2 wiki pages for past workshops (see http://wiki.macaulay2.com/Macaulay2/index.php?title=Macaulay2_Wiki ). There is ongoing work on many of the packages described there, and we hope that a few teams will propose new projects and work on them at this workshop as well.
Support is available from the Macaulay2 NSF grant for a small number of US based people with experience with M2. We also have some local funding that can provide partial support for participants. If you would like to attend, please apply as soon as possible at the following webpage: http://goo.gl/forms/nx1ZoWHHXE and also register at the Warwick MRC page: http://web.warwick.ac.uk/mrc/events.php
Your application should include:
1. information about what projects/algorithms you would like to work on, and what you have done in the past. (This is the most important piece --- please put some thought into this and be as specific as possible),
2. whether you would require financial support for travel expenses, and if you will be willing to share a room.
3. your current institution and rank, and if you are a PhD student, your supervisor's name.
Applications are due by 1 April, 2016. We plan to allocate local funds to participants shortly thereafter.
