Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry - MEGA 2007, Extended Deadline

http://www.ricam.oeaw.ac.at/mega2007/openconf/author/submit.php

The deadline for submission of papers to MEGA 2007 has been extended
to January 24, 23:59:59 CET.

Paper Submission Webpage:
    http://www.ricam.oeaw.ac.at/mega2007/openconf/author/submit.php
*********************************************************************

Submissions should contain recent original research relevant to the
topics of the conference. There are two possible modes of submission:

    *   Full papers with complete proofs. In this case also an
        abstract of two to four pages is requested.
    *   Extended abstracts of at least four pages containing full
        results, an outline of the proofs and all of the main ideas.
        If the result should be published, a full paper must be handed
        in later.

MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry (and its
equivalent in Italian, French, Spanish, German, Russian etc.), a series
of roughly biannual conferences on computational and application aspects
of Algebraic Geometry and related topics, with very high standards.
Previous meetings were held in 1990 (Castiglioncello, Italy), 1992
(Nice, France), 1994 (Santander, Spain), 1996 (Eindhoven, Nederlands),
1998 (Malo, France), 2000 (Bath, UK), 2003 (Kaiserslautern, Germany) and
2005 (Alghero, Italy).

Proceedings containing a selection of the papers and invited talks
presented at previous conferences have been published by Birkhaeuser in
the series Progress in Mathematics (volumes 94, 109, 143), by the
Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra (volumes 117, 118, 139, 164), and by
the Journal of Symbolic Computation (volume 39/3-4 and one double issue
to appear). We plan to publish selected papers from the conference in a
special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation.

MEGA 2007 will be held at the "bifeb" (a center for adult education) in
"Strobl am Wolfgangsee", Austria, from June 24 to 30, 2007.

For submitting a paper, go to
    http://www.ricam.oeaw.ac.at/mega2007/openconf/author/submit.php
and follow the instructions.
