This is a project to support a three-day commutative algebra conference at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), May 7-9, 2005. The main goals of this conference will be to help recent Ph.D.s and graduate students in the field to meet experienced researchers, to learn about recent developments in commutative algebra, to exchange ideas with one another, and to develop collaborations for future research. The primary topics will be aspects of representation theory, homological algebra, computational algebra and ideal theory that interact with commutative algebra. Speakers will be invited to discuss connections among these topics. We seek support primarily for a target group of participants: those who are recent Ph.D.s, graduate students or women, as well as faculty from under-represented groups or primarily teaching institutions. Most of the talks will be accessible to graduate students and will demonstrate the main problems and techniques in the discipline. Over the last fifteen years there has been intense and ground-breaking activity in commutative algebra, activity which has been rapidly transforming the field. There is also extensive interaction with researchers in areas as diverse as algebraic geometry, coding theory, combinatorics, homotopy theory, K-theory, and rep- resentation theory. The proposed gathering will provide an opportunity for algebraists to interact and establish research connections with each other; in particular the targeted participants will benefit from the interaction and from seeing recent developments in the field and its relationships with other areas.
