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

Friday's lecture will be in David Rittenhouse Laboratory (DRL), University of Pennsylvania, 209 South 33rd Street, on the southeast corner of 33rd and Walnut Streets, and Saturday's activities will be in the Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building (PISB), Drexel University, 3245 Chestnut Street, on the northeast corner of 33rd and Chestnut Streets.

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: 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.
