The seventh annual Mid-Atlantic Algebra, Geometry, and Combinatorics (MAAGC) Workshop will take place March 13 -- 15, 2020 at the University of Virginia.

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 National Science Foundation grant DMS-1728937 and 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. 

Financial support:
  There is funding for regional travel and housing, especially for junior participants participating in the poster session. Register by February 1, 2020 
to receive full consideration for funding for travel and housing. Some funds for childcare are available -- please contact the organizers as soon as possible if childcare is requested.

Speakers:

Jonah Blasiak
Linda Chen
Rosa Orellana
Anne Schilling

Special session of the AMS:  This year, the workshop will be organized around a special session on recent combinatorial advances in representation theory and geometry: http://www.ams.org/meetings/sectional/2273_program_ss29.html#title

Organizing Committee: Jonah Blasiak (Drexel), Linda Chen (Swarthmore), Alexander Diaz-Lopez (Villanova), Sarah Mason (Wake Forest), Elizabeth Milićević (Haverford), Jennifer Morse (UVA), Amy Myers (Bryn Mawr).


Scientific Committee: Alexander Diaz-Lopez (Villanova), Jim Haglund (UPenn), Sarah Mason (Wake Forest), Elizabeth Milićević (Haverford), Jennifer Morse (UVA).

ScheduleTBA

Panel: There will be a 45-minute panel discussion.
 This professional development event is intended for all participants as well as members of the regional mathematics community: students, postdocs and faculty. 

Posters: We encourage all students and postdocs to participate in the poster session. The registration page will include a brief application to participate. For some excellent advice and several links to poster making resources (including templates), see this conference poster advice page.

Location and Directions: 

Hotel: We strongly recommend booking early since Charlottesville hotels can fill up quickly.  If you only have tentative plans, booking at a hotel which allows changes and cancellations is advisable.  The ideal location is Main St. W (such as Graduate Hotel, Hampton Inn & Suites, and Courtyard by Marriot).
