KUMUNU 2023 

Sept 23 - 24 @ University of Missouri, Columbia MO



KUMUNU, which is named for its original participating institutions (the University of Kansas, the University of Missouri–Columbia, and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln), has been an annual conference for commutative algebraists in the Great Plains region since 1999. It has grown significantly since its inception, and currently attracts about 100 participants from a significantly larger geographical region. The goal of KUMUNU is to provide a setting to share cutting-edge mathematical research and promote collaborations among algebraists in or within driving distance of the Great Plains region. Major goals specific to KUMUNU are to broaden the geographic reach of the conference, promote connection between commutative algebra and related areas, and showcase the research of early career mathematicians.



Graduate Student Speakers


The conference will be held in the Agriculture Building. Specifically, Room 2-16 will be used for talks, while Room 2-10 will be used for the Poster Session. The following is a link to the location of the Agriculture Building on the campus map: Agriculture Building location

Also, there is the Hitt Street Visitor Parking Lot, on Hitt Street, north of Rollins, right across from the Agriculture Building. Both parking lots are free during the week-end. Please, be aware that the parking lot west of the Mathematical Sciences Building (CG18) is no longer available on week-ends. Metered parking on Hitt Street, itself, is not free even on the weekend.

Hotel Information

Soon after filling out the on-line registration form, you will receive an e-mail informing you of your hotel room reservation. To have your room guaranteed, it is essential that your registration be completed before 5 pm on September 5, 2023
