About The Conference

The first edition of the GABY conference will take place from May 21st through May 25th, 2018. It is aimed mainly at young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) working in group theory, algebras, and related topics.

The goal of the conference is to give the participants the opportunity to learn new subjects through the three mini-courses given by the invited speakers (see below), to present their research and to provide the young participants an informal environment where to meet and discuss about their favourite math.

There will be the possibility for interested participants to give a talk, or to present a poster. Please indicate during the registration whether you wish to. For the deadlines, please see the Registration section. Some funding will be available for young participants (see the FAQ section).

Organisers: Gianmarco Chinello, Jessica Cologna, Giulia Dal Verme, Benedetta Lancellotti, Lorenzo Moreschini, Arianna Olivieri, Claudio Quadrelli, Davide Veronelli.

FAQ

By Subway: the Bicocca station of the M5 line is the closest to the campus, 5' walk far from the Department of Mathematics. For further information on the public transit network in Milan check on ATM website.

By Train: the train station Greco-Pirelli is next to the campus, almost in front of the Department of Mathematics. Inside the urban rail network you can use the same ticket as the public transit. From P. Garibaldi station (the main urban rail and subway hub) there are suburban and local trains reaching Greco-Pirelli station in 6' every 10'-15'. From Centrale station, the easiest way to get to the campus is to take the subway (lines M3 and M5, change at Zara station). There are local trains reaching Greco-Pirelli station also from Lambrate station, Forlanini station and Rogoredo station. For the train schedule and further information check on Trenord website.

By Airplane: if you land at Malpensa Airport, the Malpensa Express train connects both terminals with P. Garibaldi station and Centrale station - check the schedule here. Several buses connect Linate Airport and Orio al Serio Airport with the city center (with Centrale station as final destination).
