The Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences (IASBS) and the Institute for research in
fundametal sciences (IPM) are organizing a summer research school on "Algebra, Combinatorics and
Geometry of Monomials" from 5 to 17 August 2017.

The aim of the school is to introduce research topics in the main streams of Algebraic Geometry and 
Commutative Algebra to young researchers and PhD students, and encourage them to collaborate in
teams leaded by well-known mathematicians. To reach this aim, an educational-research school will be
organized for a period of 2 weeks in IASBS. After some intensive courses on special topics, participants
will be divided into groups and start work and research on some proposed related problems. These
collaborations will be continued after the schools.

The topic of monomial ideals and algebras, as a subject of Commutative Algebra, Homological Algebra,
Combinatorics and Geometry will be investigated from several points of view. The common point will
be reaching to understand the behavior of monomials when the corresponding ideal or algebra has
special properties.
