This workshop on Combinatorial Commutative Algebra aims to bring together researchers studying toric algebra and degenerations, simplicial objects such as monomial ideals and Stanley-Reisner rings, and their connections to tropical geometry, algebraic statistics, Hilbert schemes, D-modules, and hypergeometric functions.Speakers:Christine Berkesch (Duke University)Aldo Conca (Università degli Studi di Genova)David Eisenbud (University of California, Berkeley)Daniel Erman (University of Michigan)Juergen Herzog (Universität Duisburg-Essen)June Huh (University of Michigan)Thomas Kahle (MSRI, Berkeley)Mateusz Michalek (Max-Planck Institute, Bonn)Ezra Miller (Duke University)Satoshi Murai (Yamaguchi University)Uwe Nagel (University of Kentucky)Hidefumi Ohsugi (Rikkyo University)Sonja Petrovic (Penn State University)Claudia Polini (University of Notre Dame)Jenna Rajchgot (University of Michigan)Tim Roemer (Universität Osnabrück)Steven Sam (MSRI and UC Berkeley)Anne Shiu (University of Chicago)Greg Smith (Queen's University)Adam Van Tuyl (Lakehead University)Matteo Varbaro (Università degli Studi di Genova)Josephine Yu (Georgia Tech)Accommodation: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Rose Garden Inn.
