COW seminar

Meetings - - Algebraic geometry information - - Other events

The COW seminar is an Algebraic geometry seminar which is so called because it originally met in Cambridge, Oxford or Warwick. Meetings, of which there are several every term, are now also regularly held in Bath and London (Imperial College) and occasionally in other places.

The general organisers are Miles Reid at Warwick and Gregory Sankaran at Bath. Many other people help.

The COW seminar is funded by the London Mathematical Society. The funds are held at Bath. To claim your travel expenses you have to fill in a Bath travel claim form (the word COW should appear prominently) and post it to Finance Secretary, Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Bath, Bath BA2 7AY.


Programmes

Next meeting

There will be a meeting in Oxford on July 12th. The expected speakers are Andrei Okounkov, Nigel Hitchin and Dominic Joyce. The meeting will start at 1:30 but other details are to be confirmed.

Bar cow
Social programme The preferred pub in Oxford is the Eagle and Child, but a decision about where to go will be made on the day by those present.

When a COW meeting is planned, a copy of the announcement suitable for printing and displaying on a notice board is made available. This also carries abstracts.

Future meetings

The COW is likely to meet in Oxford on or around July 10th, possibly with a talk by Andrei Okounkov.

The second British Algebraic Geometry Meeting is in Edinburgh from 13th to 15th April.
