Sage Days 12: San Diego

Sage is a free open-source mathematics software system licensed under the GPL. It combines the power of many existing open-source packages into a common Python-based interface. Sage Days 12 is a mainly developer-oriented workshop for work on the Sage mathematical software system. It will be held at the Calit2 Center at UC San Diego and is funded by CCR La Jolla.

Goals and Structure

The structure of the workshop is as follows: there will be a few lectures each day and and the rest of the day is spent with intense working sessions. This will consist mostly of groups working to implement new functionality in Sage, or discussing design decisions for new features. One of the main goals of this workshop is get many bugs as listed on Sage's bug tracker ( fixed. Of course, every participant is free to work on whatever he/she feels most productive working on. For instance, a small group will focus on discussing and implementation Jean-Charles Faugere's F5 algorithm for computing Gröbner bases.
