Preceding the SIAM Applied Algebraic Geometry meeting there will be three full days of M2 tutorials on July 27-29 (Thu-Sat), taking place at Georgia Tech. These tutorials are intended to appeal to participants with any level of prior M2 experience. The topics will range from the basic functionality of M2 to modeling problems in the M2 language to more specialized tutorials on algebraic statistics and numerical algebraic geometry. We will also reserve ample time for practice and Q&A sessions.


Registration is free, but please fill the form here. The deadline to apply for financial support (for local expenses) is May 15, 2017. Priority will be given to students and early career participants.
