The sixth annual Mid-Atlantic Algebra, Geometry, and Combinatorics (MAAGC) Workshop will take place Friday and Saturday, May 3-4, 2019 in Gerri C. Lebow Hall, Drexel University, located at 3220 Market Street 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: Please register here. 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.
