Program Information

Overview: MAGGC is a conference in algebraic geometry for graduate students. MAGGC is a fantastic place for students to present and share their research with their peers. This year the conference will take place at UIC on May 25-27, 2018. Here is a beautiful picture from the conference this year.

We are honoured to have Aaron Bertram as our plenary speaker. Talks will be 50 minutes with time for questions.

Abstract/Poster Submissions: If you are interested in giving a talk or poster, please fill out this form. We welcome submissions in algebraic geometry and related fields, including (but not limited to) complex geometry, commutative algebra, representation theory, and number theory.

Funding: We have limited funding. The last day to register and apply for funding is March 15, 2018. After this date, we might still be able to cover parking at UIC for those who drive. While we expect to cover accommodation for all participants, we encourage that the participants find their own funding for travel. For questions about funding or the conference in general, please email


Food: We will have a workshop dinner on Friday night at Joy Yee.   On Saturday and Sunday morning before the lectures, there will be some beverages (coffee, tea, juice) and refreshments (fruit, pastries) provided.
