|PARI/GP conference (September 2003)|
[I am forwarding this message. Sorry about multiple copies. -- K.B.] Dear Pari/GP lovers, I am planning to organize an international technical conference on Pari/GP in Bordeaux in early September 2003. My ideas (which can be changed by the participants) are the following: * The conference should last more than 1 week. Perhaps 10 days, even 2 weeks. * It should have a VERY small number of talks (perhaps 2 per day). * It should consist mainly in technical exchanges between participants, which can be -- about algorithms and implementations -- between all the participants, or in small groups. * It is an absolute priority that people actively involved in the pari-dev mailing list be present: outside of the French people, Gerhard Niklasch, Igor Schein, Ilya Zakharevitch, etc. * Mathematicians using Pari/GP intensively, such as Don Zagier, Fernando Rodriguez-Villegas or Noam Elkies, to name only a few, will be invited, even though they may not come. * I will invite people from similar projects: in particular from the Magma group, from Lidia, from Kant, from GMP, and others. * Attendance to the conference will of course not only be on invitation, anybody interested is welcome. There will be available a large network of machines (20 perhaps) on which to work. I have grants which can cover some expenses of invited people, but certainly not all expenses of all people. For instance, I can probably cover all the local expenses of about 30 people, or local expenses + not too expensive travel of 15 people, etc... Of course, I would appreciate if some participants could pay at least part of their needs through grants of their own. Please send comments as soon as possible. Henri Cohen.
