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 Nicolas Addington, Roya Beheshti Zavareh, María Angélica Cueto, José González, Dustin Ross, Karl Schwede, Mark Shoemaker and Farbod Shokrieh. For more information about WAGS, please visit http://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. 

Community Agreement

WAGS aims to create an environment that is stimulating, supportive, and welcoming to all participants.  We build that through our community, with each of us playing an active role in creating a positive environment.  We ask you to be welcoming, respectful, and generous towards all attendees and recognize that it is your responsibility to ensure that your actions match your intent.  Discriminatory, exclusionary, or harassing behavior has no place at WAGS.  If you have experienced or witnessed behavior that makes you uncomfortable, please contact a member of the Organizing Council.  All reports will be handled in the strictest confidentiality.


The meeting will be held in room Physics 2000 at the University of California, Riverside. See here for a university map.  


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.  We ask that all participants fill out the registration form to help us with NSF reporting; registration for WAGS is free:

Poster Session

On Saturday November 5 there will be a poster session.  If you wish to present a poster, please state so in your conference registration form.

Transportation in Riverside


Walking distance from the university:

Downtown also offers a variety of great lodging options at a higher price point than the ones above. It has the advantage of being a very nice part of town, however, it's too far to walk to campus.

Local information

Most of the restaurants and other activities in Riverside are in downtown. The heart of downtown is in Main St. between University Ave. and Mission Inn Ave.

Local organizers

Local organization is by Patricio Gallardo, Javier González Anaya and José Luis González.
