Australian Algebra Conference

Monday January 18 - Tuesday January 19, 2021
Venue: Online, hosted by the University of Melbourne

The aim of the annual Australian Algebra Conference is to foster communication between algebraists in Australia. We interpret algebra broadly, including areas such as topological algebra, algebraic logic, graph theory and coding theory. The conference is run by the Australian Algebra Group, which is a special interest group of the Australian Mathematical Society.
