First de Brún Workshop on
There is no registration fee. Those wishing to attend the workshop
should e-mail the organisers (email@example.com and
firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
The first lecture will be at 10am on Tuesday 22 July, and the last
lecture will end at 12.30 on Friday 1 August. There will be a Workshop
trip to the Burren, Co. Clare in the first week, and to the Galway
Races in the
second week. There will be no lectures on the Saturday afternoon and
Sunday. Lecture courses will take place in the mornings, and
participants will have the opportunity to contribute talks on their
research in the afternoons.
A programme is now
available. So too is a full list of participants.
There is also a list of participants
staying in Corrib Village. We have booked five appartments in
Corrib Village; each has four rooms one of which is a twin room.
Unfortunately, some participants will have to share a twin room. All Corrib Village participants
are being subsidized and so need only pay 70 euro per week, or 35 euro
per week if they are sharing. If there is a letter
after your name then we have you down to share a room with the other
participant with that letter. If this is a problem please contact
Mary.Kelly@nuigalway.ie as soon as possible.
The lecture courses are aimed at mathematicians with a general interest
in computational aspects of algebra, but who don't necessarily have
expertise in the topics of the courses. For the afternoon research
talks our interpretation of "computational algebra" is catholic!
Contribute a talk
If you would like to give a talk, please send a provisional title as
soon as possible.
The workshop overlaps with the end of Galway's arts festival and the
second week of the workshop is Galway Race week. So there is a lot of
demand from tourists for accommodation at this time of year.
We have block booked rooms on campus in Corrib Village. The cost is 440
the period: arrival 21 July - deprture 1 August. Please let us know as
soon as possible if you would like one of these rooms.
We have some funds to help with the accommodation costs of graduate
students and possibly others. So please let us know if you would like
to be considered for this support.
