Workshop Arithmetic Geometry and Computer Algebra

Oldenburg, 29/06/17 - 01/07/17

The idea of the workshop is to bring together arithmetic geometers who use computer algebra in their research and experts in computer algebra who work on algorithms motivated by or used in arithmetic geometry. Besides talks about new and improved algorithms and their applications in arithmetic geometry, we will also have presentations by developers of some of the major computer algebra systems and libraries used in arithmetic geometry about recent functionality and future plans. There will be ample time for discussions and collaboration and for trying out and developing new functionality.


Florian Heß, Steffen Müller, Andreas Stein

Venue and transportation

All talks will take place at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität in Building W1, Lecture Hall W1 0-015. Building W1 is part of Campus Wechloy, bus stop Carl-von-Ossietzky-Straße. This is the terminal stop of the bus service 306. (Do not exit at the bus stop Universität which is at Campus Uhlhornsweg). The 306 leaves from the train station and from the bus stop Lappan, close to hotels Sprenz and Antares; the travel time is about 15-20 minutes. If you enter Campus Wechloy by the main entrance, then room W1 0-015 is just one floor down (on level 0) on the left-hand side of the entrance hall. 


The conference dinner will take place at the restaurant Zum Drögen Hasen on Friday at 7 PM.
