Second announcement and call for papers / computations presentations/

MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry (and its
equivalent in many other languages). This series of biennial international
conferences, with a tradition dating back to 1990, is devoted to
computational and application aspects of Algebraic Geometry and related

The conference will comprise invited talks, regular contributed talks,
presentations of computations, and a poster session; the latter three are
subject to a competitive submission process.

Invited speakers:

     Jeremy Blanc  (Basel)
     Jaroslaw Buczynski (Warsaw)
     Eimear Byrne (Dublin)
     Lothar Goettsche (ICTP Trieste)
     Milena Hering  (Edinburgh)
     June Huh  (Princeton)
     Pierre Lairez  (TU Berlin)
     Martin Sombra  (Barcelona)

Important dates:

Deadline for submissions of papers/extended abstracts:
        1 December 2016
Notification of acceptance of papers/extended abstracts:
        15 February 2017

Deadline for submission of computation presentations/posters:
        15 March 2017
Notification of acceptence of computation presentations/posters:
        15 April 2017

Deadline for registration and fee payment: TBD

Submissions: Please submit online at
Submissions should contain recent original research relevant to effective
methods in algebraic geometry (in a broad sense), including their
foundations, analysis, complexity, computational aspects, practical issues
and applications.

There are three types of submissions, distributed over the two deadlines

- Regular papers, aimed to contributed talks: for these, authors can choose
to submit
   either an extended abstract of at least four pages (not counting
   bibliography) that should contain full results, an outline of the proofs
   and all of the main ideas; or else a full paper with complete proofs.

- Computation presentations: these can concern new software packages,
   but also experiments with existing software that have
   led to new computational approaches to mathematical proofs/applications
   relevant to MEGA. Submission should be in the form of a short paper
   describing the software or computations.

- Posters: to be printed on A1, the posters will be exhibited
   during most of the conference, and during a poster session the authors
   will have the opportunity to discuss their work with the conference

All submissions should clearly state the contributions and achievements,
with sufficient detail to understand their significance.

Submissions may contain material already submitted elsewhere, but this fact
has to be stated explicitly in the abstract. Acceptance of such submissions
depends on their special significance for the community.

Acceptance of a submitted contribution means acceptance for oral or poster
presentation only. A special issue of a journal is planned to which authors
of accepted original papers will be invited to submit the full version
after the conference. Only original research contributions will be
considered for publication in the journal special issue.
