[DMANET] MEGA 2015 - extension of submission deadline to 12 december 2014


Final call and *extended deadline* for papers/extended abstracts


The deadline for submissions of papers/extended abstracts for MEGA 2015
has been extended to

12 December 2014

Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry
University of Trento, Department of Mathematics,
Povo (Trento) Italy
June 15-19, 2015

This is the 25th anniversary of MEGA. During the conference we will
celebrate this anniversary with a special afternoon programme at a small
lake surrounded by the hills near Trento.

MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry (and
its equivalent in many other languages). This series of biennial
international conferences, with a tradition dating back to 1990, is
devoted to computational and application aspects of Algebraic Geometry
and related topics.

The conference will comprise invited talks, regular contributed talks,
presentations of computations, and a poster session; the latter three
are subject to a competitive submission process.

Invited speakers:

Alessandra Bernardi (University of Turin, Italy)
Petter Brändén (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden)
Elisa Gorla (University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland)
Hans-Christian Graf von Bothmer (University Göttingen, Germany)
Anders Jensen (Aarhus University, Denmark)
Michael Joswig (Technical University of Berlin, Germany)
Frank Sottile (Texas A&M University, USA)
Caroline Uhler (Institute of Science and Technology, Austria)

(Carlos Beltran has had to cancel).

Special invited talk during the special afternoon:

Daniel Lazard (Paris 6) on the history of MEGA and related groups

Important dates:

Deadline for submissions of papers/extended abstracts:
12 December 2014
Notification of acceptance of papers/extended abstracts:
15 February 2015

Deadline for submission of posters/computation presentatations:
15 March 2015
Notification of acceptence of posters/computation presentations:
15 April 2015

Deadline for registration and fee payment: TBD

Submissions: Submissions should contain recent original research
relevant to effective methods in algebraic geometry (in a broad sense),
including their foundations, analysis, complexity, computational
aspects, practical issues and applications. On this occasion we
especially encourage submissions related to finite fields, cryptography
and coding theory, as we would like to have a session specifically
devoted to these topics.

There are three types of submissions, distributed over the two deadlines

- Regular papers: for these, authors can choose to submit
either an extended abstract of at least four pages (not counting
bibliography) that should contain full results, an outline of the proofs
and all of the main ideas; or else a full paper with complete proofs.

- Computation presentations: these can concern new software packages,
but also experiments with (combinations) existing software that have
led to new computational approaches to mathematical proofs/applications
relevant to MEGA. Submission should be in the form of a short paper
describing the software or computations.

- Posters: to be printed on A1, the posters will be exhibited
during most of the conference, and during a poster session the authors
will have the opportunity to discuss their work with the conference

All submissions should clearly state the contributions and achievements,
with sufficient detail to understand their significance.

Submissions may contain material already submitted elsewhere, but this
fact has to be stated explicitly in the abstract. Acceptance of such
submissions depends on their special significance for the community.

Papers are to be submitted online through the Easy Chair interface,
available at

Acceptance of a submitted contribution means acceptance for oral or
poster presentation only. A special issue of a journal is planned to
which authors of accepted original papers will be invited to submit the
full version after the conference. Only original research contributions
will be considered for publication in the journal special issue.
