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, Sándor Kovács, Ravi Vakil, and Bianca Viray.

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 meeting will be held at Colorado State University, in Fort Collins, Colorado. Everything will take place in the Plant Science building, 307 University Ave., room PLSCI C 101. Click here for a campus map and locator; Weber is on the oval in the northeast corner of campus.
The poster session and reception will be held early Saturday evening at the Fort Collins Brewery, 1020 E. Lincoln Ave..
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.
