Midwest Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry Conference

Location: University of Notre Dame

A Meeting in Honor of Juan Migliore: May 16 - 19, 2016

With this edition of the Midwest Algebra and Geometry Meeting we will honor and celebrate Juan Migliore on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. The topics of the conference are recent advances in Commutative Algebra and its interaction with Algebraic Geometry, with particular emphasis on liaison theory, Hilbert functions, characteristic p methods, multiplicity theory, multiplier ideals, free resolutions, and local cohomology.
