In view of the current situation, we have regretfully decided to cancel the Homological Trends in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry meeting in Bucharest.
We thank you for your interest in our conference and we are sorry for this inconvenience. We intend to reschedule the conference when safer times will arrive.
Centre Francophone en Mathématiques de Bucharest, ICUB (The Research Institute of the University of Bucharest), the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Bucharest and Simion Stoilow Institute of Mathematics of the Romanian Academy will organize the conference "Homological Trends in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry". We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of
Centre Francophone en Mathématiques de Bucharest, Foundation Compositio Mathematica, ICUB and
The talks will take place at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Bucharest, and will start in the morning of June 1st and end in the late afternoon of June 5th 2020, with May 31st/June 6th the arrival/departure day.

Bucharest has a full range of accommodation facilities, at different rates and standards. The conference venue is downtown, so we reccomend you to book the accommodation in the center area. The conference venue can be reached directly from the airport by express bus 783, which is available 24 hours from Arrivals terminal. In order to reach the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science directly from the airport one should get the bus 783 from Arrivals terminal and get down at "PIATA 21 DECEMBRIE 1989", see the time schedule here. This bus stop is placed near the University building, at about 200 metres from the entrance of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science.
Citizens of virtually all European countries, as well as Australia, Canada, Israel, Japan, New Zealand and the USA, do not require visas to visit Romania for short-stays (up to 90 days). For citizens from other
countries, visas are issued at Romanian consulates. The bearers of a visa with 2 or multiple entries, a long-term visa or a residence permit issued by Schengen Member States shall no longer be required to hold a short-stay visa.
