COW Seminar
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.
COW welcomes GAeL
GAeL XXV took place in Bath, 26th30th June 2017.

Next meeting
Nothing is planned at present. When there is something planned, a copy of the announcement suitable for printing and displaying on a notice board is made available.
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.
Sources of information

Details of COW activities are usually circulated by email. UK
mathematicians, including research students, interested in algebraic
geometry in the wide sense may (and probably should) subscribe to the
mailing lists. To do so, you go to
http://listserv.csv.warwick.ac.uk/mailman/listinfo/cowalggeom
and follow the instructions there.  The erstwhile European algebraic geometry network EAGER still exists in the form of a useful electronic mailing list called eagergen, which you may wish to join.
 The London topology and geometry seminar also runs a mailing list. To join it, email "subscribe" to geometryrequest@ic.ac.uk.
 A vital resource for all geometers is the eprint server arXiv. For algebraic geometry math.AG is the most important category but some other categories are also relevant.
Other events
 AprèsGAeL: see above, or the local schedule
 Higher Dimensional Birational Geometry, in honour of Professor Shigefumi Mori, takes place in Warwick on July 14th15th.
 Links to future events and related algebraic geometry sites are sometimes collected at a central location.
 The northern equivalent of COW is GLEN, which meets in Glasgow, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Newcastle. The midlands equivalent of COW is EmSG, which meets in Nottingham, Loughborough, Leicester and Sheffield. Do not be confused by one of the COW's LMS official supporters being at Loughborough, nor by EmSG's webpage being in Sydney.
 A more local but even less specific seminar is the London Topology and Geometry Seminar, also known as G&T.
 The Calf is a seminar organised by and for graduate students in geometry.

We are sorry if you thought this page was going to be really about cows and were disappointed.
