A^3 Abstract Algebra and Algorithms Conference

New: Programme (updated: 15/08 ) Photo

August 14-17, 2011, Eger, Hungary
Eszterházy Károly College www.ektf.hu

The A^3 international meeting is aimed at mathematicians and computer scientists interested in Abstract Algebra. Though this part of Mathematics has many different branches, still the unique style of algebraic thinking is recognizable and retained in all kind of algebraic research. The meeting will utilize this common language to bring together algebraists working in different research directions and to facilitate conversations and discussions between researchers. The meeting also puts some emphasis on the computational aspects of abstract algebra.

Topics include, but not limited to:

  • groups and semigroups
  • rings and algebras
  • fields, modules, vector spaces
  • universal algebra, category theory
  • abstract algebraic algorithms

The scientific program includes invited plenary talks (45 min) and contributed talks (20 min) and tutorial sessions for algebraic software packages.

The participants of this conference may also be interested in the AFL
conference right after this meeting.


Eger is a charming little town in Northern-East Hungary, east of the Mátra mountains and south of the Bükk mountains. It is famous for its historical buildings including a castle and a turkish minaret, thermal baths and wine. The meeting is hosted by the Eszterházy Károly College and the venue is right behind the castle.

How to get Eger?

By train:

Trains leave the Budapest Keleti station each hour (journey planner), but one may require you to change trains in Füzesabony. Most of these trains are *gyors* (fast) trains and will take about two hours and 20 minutes to arrive. Hourly IC trains will take you directly to Füzesabony, cutting the total travel time to just under two hours, but a reservation is required.

By bus:

Buses leave Budapest’s Stadionok station for Eger twice an hour (journey planner hungarian only) and the trip takes a little over two hours . Less if you travel with the express service.

By car:

The easiest way to arrive is to take the M3 as far as Füzesabony, then continue north on route 25. More Info
