Abstracts are being accepted for MCAG 2012. 
 MCAG: Michigan Computational Algebraic Geometry  is a one day workshop organized every Spring in one of the Michigan universities as a collaboration between researchers and companies in Michigan.

MCAG has two plenary talks and 10-12 other talks.  The theme of the conference is decided by the local organizers.  All areas of Algebraic Geometry are welcomed.
