Sage Days 79 - November 21 -- November 24, 2016, Jerusalem

First Sage Days in Israel

Einstein Institute of Mathematics, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

Topics: Combinatorics, Symbolic dynamics

This Sage Days is the first one organized in Israel under the framework of the European Research Council (ERC) grant entitled: “Avenues in Probabilistic and Geometric Combinatorics”. The aim of the meeting will be to introduce the software to students and mathematicians in the region, with further emphasis on (but not limited to) geometric combinatorics and symbolic dynamics. It will be a great occasion to learn more about the software and for advanced developers to present and improve current tools.

Organizers: Jean-Philippe Labbé.

Dates and Venue

Date: 4 days from November 21 to November 24, 2016

Fridays are usually considered weekend days in Israel.

Venue: Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Givat Ram Campus, (exact rooms TBA)


The program will include introduction tutorials to Sage, combinatorics and symbolic dynamics in Sage. The meeting will include scientific talks and there will also be time for code sprints.

Detailed schedule to be announced.

Registration & Funding

The funding deadline is now passed. It is still possible to register to the workshop until November 4 2016.

Please send the following form to Jean-Philippe Labbé

  • Name:
  • Institution:
  • Date of arrival:
  • Date of departure:
  • What are your interests in Sage (including coding projects)? What would you like to learn about Sage?
  • What are your programming experiences?
  • Do you use computer algebra systems? Which one?
  • Do you wish to give a talk or present a tutorial?

A talk can be on anything related to mathematical development (it does not have to be Sage) If you have some Sage experience, please consider giving a tutorial.


We have 10 rooms reserved at the Beit Belgia (Belgium House) on Givat Ram campus from November 20th to November 25th. Seven of them have two single beds and the other three are suits with a double bed and a couch. People receiving funding for housing will have a room there waiting for them. Depending on the availability, the remaining rooms will be available for participants not receiving lodging funding. More information to come.

There are also hotels near to campus:

Prima Park Hotel

Jerusalem Gardens Hotel

For people that want to extend their stay before/after the workshop, Abraham Hostel is a very good choice of hotel/hostel downtown, close to the tram line and 10 minutes walk to the old city.

Get to Jerusalem

The principal international airport in Israel is Tel Aviv Airport (TLV) located 55km from Jerusalem.

It is possible to get to Jerusalem from the airport:

  1. with a licenced taxi (beige colored with black), just exit the airport and turn left. It costs around 250-300NIS.
  2. with a shared taxi (mini-van) called "sherut", just exit the airport and turn right. It costs 64NIS. No need of reservation, but it leaves once the van is full. Tell to the driver "Givat Ram Campus, Beit Belgia".

The ride takes between 50 minutes and 1h15 depending on traffic conditions

Prior to the workshop we will try to organize us to coordinate taxis if possible.
