International Conference on Gröbner Bases

``33 Years of Gröbner Bases''

RISC-Linz (Austria),   February 2 - 4, 1998

The institute RISC-Linz of the Johannes Kepler Universität in Linz, Austria, will organize an International Conference on Gröbner Bases, entitled ``33 Years of Gröbner Bases'', in February 2-4, 1998. The site of the conference will be the medieval Castle of Hagenberg near Linz, the home of RISC-Linz.

Since the invention of Gröbner bases by Buchberger in 1965, this new method in polynomial ideal theory and algebraic elimination theory has become one of the standard methods in computer algebra. There exists by now a considerable amount of theoretical work on Gröbner bases, every major computer algebra system has an implementation of Gröbner bases, and the field of applications ranges from algebraic geometry and computer aided geometric design to chemical structure analysis. The aim of the conference is to assess the state of the art in the theory and practice of Gröbner bases. In addition to the regular program of the conference we plan to organize a software exhibition.

The conference is part of the Special Year in Gröbner Bases organized by RISC-Linz.
