SIAM Journal on applied algebra and geometry

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!

Seminar in coding theory and cryptography

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.

Journal of algebra and its applications

I recently joined the editorial board of the Journal of Algebra and its Applications. I will be handling submissions on public key cryptography, coding theory, commutative algebra, and algebraic geometry.

MEGA 2017 in Nice

The next MEGA conference will be held in Nice (France) on June 12-16, 2017. I am a member of the executive committee.


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.

Applications of algebraic geometry at IPAM

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.

Conferences in honor of Juan Migliore and Winfried Bruns

On May 16-19 I was 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 was at the Palazzone in Cortona for the conference on Homological and Computational Methods in Commutative Algebra on the occasion of Winfried Bruns' seventieth birthday.
