Welcome

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 Snow Hall 120, 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 Department of Mathematics at the University of Kansas.
