I am part of the editorial board of the
newly established SIAM
Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry. The
journal will start accepting submissions by the end of
March. Please consider submitting
your best work! |

I organize a research seminar
in coding theory and cryptography, together with J.
Rosenthal. The seminar takes place at the Universities of
Neuchatel and Zurich.

On February 22-26 I was at IPAM for the workshop on Algebraic
Geometry for Coding Theory and Cryptography. I lead a research
group on trace zero subgroups, together with Christophe
Ritzenthaler.

On May 16-19 I will be at the University of Notre Dame for
the Midwest
Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry Conference on
the occasion of Juan Migliore's sixtieth birthday. On May
20-June 3 I will be at the Palazzone in Cortona for the
conference on Homological
and Computational Methods in Commutative Algebra on the
occasion of Winfried Bruns' seventieth birthday.

I am member of the management team of CIMPA (International Centre
for Pure and Applied Mathematics), a non-profit international
organization whose aim is promoting international cooperation
in higher education and research in mathematics for the
benefit of developing countries. Please contact me if you are
interested in organizing a research school in a developing
country or in giving a course in such a school.
