| The Conference MEGA 2003 was held at the Universität
Kaiserslautern from June 10 to June 14, 2003.
MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry, a
series of roughly biennial conferences on computational aspects of Algebraic Geometry
with very high standards. It has taken place in 1990
(Castiglioncello, Italy), 1992 (Nice, France), 1994 (Santander, Spain),1996
(Eindhoven, Nederlands), 1998 (St. Malo, France) and 2000 (Bath, United
Proceedings of the papers and invited talks presented at the
conference have been published by Birkhauser in the series Progress in
Mathematics (volumes no. 94, 109 and 143) and by the Journal of Pure
and Applied Algebra (volumes no. 117 and 118, 139 and 164).
Effective Methods and Theoretical and Practical Complexity Issues in:
Commutative Algebra, Geometry, Real Geometry, Algebraic Number Theory,
Algebraic Geometry and related fields: Algebraic Analysis of
Differential Equations, Differential Geometry, Associative Algebras,
Group Theory, Algebraic Groups and Lie Algebras, Algebraic and
Differential Topology, as well as applications of these fields.
