Commutative Algebra:
Geometric, Homological, Combinatorial and Computational Aspects

Organizers: A. Corso, P. Gimenez and S. Zarzuela

Sevilla, Spain
June 18-21, 2003

From the early stages of planning the organizers of this Special Session have been working in close contact with the ones of the Lisbon Conference on Commutative Algebra with the goal of achieving a significant coverage of the field while minimizing the overlap of talks. We believe that proximity of place and time will allow a large participation to both meetings.

Jointly with the Lisbon Conference on Commutative Algebra, there will be a volume of proceedings of our Special Session: Commutative Algebra with a focus on Geometric and Homological Aspects. This volume will appear in the Lecture Notes in Pure and Applied Mathematics series, published by Marcel Dekker: It will consist of refereed research articles and will be edited by A. Corso, P. Gimenez, M. Vaz Pinto and S. Zarzuela.

The following researchers have tentatively agreed to give a 25 minutes talk in our Special Session:

Josep Àlvarez       Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain
Isabel Bermejo       Universidad de la Laguna, Spain
