We would like to invite everybody interested in algebra to an informal meeting on **Monday, December 5, 2011** in the SP2 building of the JKU. This event also marks the beginning of the Forum Algebra (http://www.forum.algebra.jku.at).

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*: Room S2 Z75: SP2 building of the JKU (map), in the *Zwischengeschoss* (entrance not by the main door but the one to the right!).

All presentations will be informal talks, 10 minutes long, on blackboard (no projectors/beamers) and aiming at a general algebraic audience. If you plan to talk, please send a title to David Sevilla (david.sevilla@oeaw.ac.at). **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*: this is probably the final schedule, up to minor changes or latest additions.
