The sixth annual Mid-Atlantic Algebra, Geometry, and Combinatorics (MAAGC) Workshop will take place Friday and Saturday, May 3-4 2019 at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

The MAAGC Workshop aims to bring together senior researchers and junior mathematicians from the region to exchange ideas and forge collaborations in algebra, geometry, and combinatorics. The conference is funded by the National Science Foundation grant DMS-1728937 and by a Mellon Tri-College Roots Grant.

Registration: Registration is free, but helpful for planning purposes (space and refreshments). Junior participants (undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdocs) are encouraged to participate in the poster session. Please include a tentative poster title during registration if you wish to be considered. Registration will open in early 2019.

Financial support:
  There is funding for regional travel and housing, especially for junior participants participating in the poster session. Some funds for childcare are available -- please contact the organizers as soon as possible if childcare is requested.
