DIAMANT/EIDMA Symposium May 2008

On 29 and 30 May 2008 the DIAMANT/EIDMA Symposium will be held at Kasteel Oud-Poelgeest.

The invited speakers are: Mai Gehrke (RU Nijmegen), Thomas Hales (University of Pittsburgh), Dietrich Notbohm (VU Amsterdam), and DIAMANT-postdocs Peter Csorba (TU Eindhoven), Nicole Immorlica (CWI Amsterdam), and Lenny Taelman (Leiden). We encourage Ph.D. students to propose talks for the remaining time slots.

How to contribute a talk

In your registration form you can propose to give a talk (submit title and abstract). The closing date for talk proposals is 2 May, as is the closing date for early registration (with reduced fee). If too many talks are proposed, the DIAMANT and EIDMA boards will make a selection.


The programme is now available.

Conference fee + accommodation

There is partial DIAMANT support for DIAMANT members (conference fee and part of the accommodation) and limited support for EIDMA members (conference fee)---provided that they register before 2 May 2008. DIAMANT members are full and associate professors listed here, as well as their research group members. Exact prices are listed on the registration page.


Please fill out the form on the registration page.

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound

A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n.
