Commutative Algebra

October 13–14, 2018


Attention:  Due to a water shutdown on the main KU campus on October 13, we are moving the location of the conference on October 13 and 14 to Forum C of the Burge Union on campus, 1516 Irving Hill Road (driving directions).

KUMUNU (which is named for its original participating institutions: the University of Kansas, University of Missouri-Columbia, and University of Nebraska-Lincoln) has been an annual conference for commutative algebraists in the Great Plains region since 1999. It has evolved into a conference involving not only commutative algebra but many different fields where commutative algebra has found applications and inspirations.

This year KUMUNU 2018 will be held at the University of Kansas, in Forum C of the Burge Union, on October 13-14, 2018. The conference will also include a poster session for postdocs and graduate students.

The conference will provide lodging for as many participants as possible. In accordance with NSF guidelines, funds will be prioritized to support participants who have no other federal support and participants who are students, post-doctoral scholars, or members of groups that are under-represented in the mathematical sciences.

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Office of the Provost and Department of Mathematics at the University of Kansas.
