We cordially invite our fellow mathematicians to attend the 94th Workshop on General Algebra – AAA94, in conjunction with the 5th Novi Sad Algebraic Conference – NSAC 2017 . The scientific program of the meeting will start in the morning of June 15, 2017 (Thursday) and end on June 18, 2017 (Sunday) around lunchtime. We expect most of the participants to arrive to Novi Sad on June 14, 2017 (Wednesday).
The workshop is organised by the Department of Mathematics and Informatics (DMI), University of Novi Sad, and the Mathematical Society of Novi Sad. The venue of the lectures will be the central building of the UNS (Zorana Đinđića 1 @ the central campus of the UNS).
Plenary invited speakers:
- Manuel Bodirsky (Dresden, Germany)
- Andrei Bulatov (Burnaby, Canada)
- Gábor Czédli (Szeged, Hungary)
- Brian Davey (Melbourne, Australia)
- Miroslav Ploščica (Košice, Slovakia)
- Nikola Ruškuc (St Andrews, UK)
- David Stanovský (Prague, Czech Republic)
- Ágnes Szendrei (Boulder, USA & Szeged, Hungary)
- Mikhail V. Volkov (Ekaterinburg, Russia)
- Dmitriy N. Zhuk (Moscow, Russia)
Miodrag Sokić (Toronto, Canada) was also an invited speaker, but unfortunately, he was forced to cancel his participation.
The program of the conference will feature three Special Sessions:
- Clones and relation algebras (dedicated to the 70th birthday of Prof. Reinhard Pöschel)
- Semigroups (dedicated to the retirement of Prof. Siniša Crvenković)
- Lattices and ordered structures (dedicated to the retirement of Prof. Branimir Šešelja)
and a special panel discussion
“Round table devoted to the recently proposed algebraic solutions of the CSP dichotomy conjecture”.
Apart from this, we welcome contributions in the following topics:
- Universal algebra and its applications in computer science;
- Classical algebraic structures;
- Interactions of general algebra with logic, topology, and combinatorics.
