Linz Algebra Research Day '11

We would like to invite everybody to an informal meeting of algebraists in Linz on Thursday, May 26, 2011 in the JKU, following the tradition initiated in 2009 and continued in 2010.

The idea is that people from the different departments and institutes in and around the JKU, and generally all who are interested in algebra, come together and give a brief overview of their current research – just so that people know what the others are doing.

Place: rooms MT 126 and MT 128 (map) until 14:30, room HS 6 (map) after that.

All presentations will be informal talks, 10 minutes long, on blackboard (no projectors) and aiming at a general algebraic audience. If you plan to talk, please send a title to David Sevilla ( There is no deadline! If the contents of your talk are based on someone else's, please indicate it so that we can schedule them accordingly. We expect to be able to accommodate all petitions.

Note to speakers: please note that 10 minutes is a very small amount of time for a talk; it is very easy to misestimate (90% of the speakers of the 2010 edition did!). You are encouraged to rehearse beforehand, even if you have a clear idea of what you will say. After all, rehearsing will take you only about 10 minutes.

Tentative schedule: note that, in particular, more talks might be added at the end.
