The Southern Regional Algebra Conference is an annual weekend conference that has been in existence since 1988. It serves an important role as part of the algebra research community in the Gulf Coast Region.  This year's scientific program includes plenary talks on “Computational Methods in Algebra and Representation Theory", a topic that will be of interest to many researchers.  Jon Carlson from the University of Georgia and Klaus Lux from the University of Arizona will be the principal speakers. In addition, the program consists of fifty 25-minute talks that are organized in two parallel sessions. All talks will be held in the Humanities Building on the USA Campus. Directions to the Humanities Building can be found here. Alternately, you may generate your own directions here.

Friday night's Conference Dinner will be in The Student Center Terrace and the the Barbecue Dinner on Saturday night at the USA Faculty Club. Directions from the Humanities Building to the Faculty Club can be found here.

For lunch on Saturday you will be on your own. Unfortunately, due to Spring Break, all locations on campus are closed. The following is a list with map of restaurants that are close to the Humanities Building.
