Midwest Commutative Algebra and Geometry Meeting:
A Conference in Honor of Joseph Lipman
Organized by
William Heinzer,
Craig Huneke and
Bernd Ulrich
at
Purdue University, West Lafayette
May 1721, 2004
The conference is in honor of
Joseph Lipman
on the occasion of his sixtyfifth birthday and is meant to celebrate his
groundbreaking contributions to both commutative algebra and algebraic
geometry. The themes of the conference are at the interface
of these two fields. They are loosely grouped around,
but not restricted to, J. Lipman's research interests:

resolution of singularities,

singularity theory,

Rees algebras and BriançonSkoda theorems,

duality theory and homological algebra.
The conference continues the tradition of commutative
algebra and algebraic geometry meetings in the Midwest, the
most recent of which took place at the University of Kentucky
in 2003.
The meeting is supported by
NSF,
Purdue University
and MSRI.
