The Centennial Celebration of Commutative Algebra

Centennial Celebration of Commutative Algebra

Friday, April 28 - Saturday, April 29

The conference will consist of eight 50-minute plenary lectures and some shorter talks. Also, on Thursday afternoon, April 27, 2000, Melvin Hochster will deliver a very general mathematical lecture (the fourth annual Howard Rowlee Lecture) at the University of Nebraska. The plenary lecturers are (listed alphabetically):

Luchezar Avramov Luchezar Avramov, Purdue University
Dale Cutkosky Dale Cutkosky, University of Missouri
Mel Hochste Mel Hochster, University of Michigan
Craig Huneke Craig Huneke, University of Kansas
Paul Roberts Paul Roberts, University of Utah
Christel Rotthaus Christel Rotthaus, Michigan State University
Hema Srinivasan Hema Srinivasan, University of Missouri
Irena Swanson Irena Swanson, New Mexico State University

We welcome all interested people to attend the conference.

We expect to have several 20-minute talks on both days. Ample time will be set aside for informal mathematical interaction. We will extend the conference through Sunday noon if necessary, but at this point we expect to end by Saturday evening. (A decision will be made by the end of March.)

Please let us know as soon as possible (preferably by March 22) whether you are likely to attend the conference and whether you are interested in giving a talk. We do not anticipate having funding for participant support, except for local amenities such as continental breakfasts and snacks and perhaps lodging for some graduate students and younger faculty.
