About WAGS

WAGS is a twice-yearly meeting of algebraic geometers in the western half of the United States and Canada that traces its origins back to the Utah-UCLA Algebraic Geometry Seminar started in 1989.

Long term planning for WAGS is currently being organized by Aaron Bertram, Sebastian Casalaina-Martin, Renzo Cavalieri, Edray Goins, Dagan Karp, Sándor Kovács, Ravi Vakil, Bianca Viray, and Burt Totaro.

For more information about WAGS, please visit www.wagsymposium.org


We hope to broaden the community of algebraic geometers. All are welcome to attend. We especially encourage participation from women and members of groups traditionally under-represented in mathematics.

The Diversity Committee for WAGS consists of Edray Goins, Jose Gonzales, and Bianca Viray.



Registration and Financial Assistance

WAGS is partially supported by the National Science Foundation and by the Department of Mathematics and the College of Natural Sciences at Colorado State University; if you need funding, please apply when you register.

We ask that all participants fill out the first form; you must fill out both forms in order to be reimbursed:
  • Registration (includes preliminary request for financial assistance);
  • Feedback (includes information on where to mail the reimbursement form).
Important links for reimbursement:
  • Visitor travel form.
Please help us keep organized by mailing your reimbursement claims by April 30th. We may run into trouble allocating funds for late submissions!

Poster Session

WAGS Fall 2018 will include a poster session.  One of the main goals of the session is to increase the flow of information between participants. Postdocs, undergraduate and graduate students are warmly and strongly encouraged to participate.
  • Registration:  As part of your registration, please let us know if you intend to contribute a poster.
  • Location and timing: The poster session will be held TBA. We will make arrangements for you to hang your posters either during lunch or immediately before the poster session.
  • Advice on posters: With the help of previous WAGS participants and organizers, we have collated the following list of resources:
