We would like to invite everybody to an informal meeting of algebraists in Linz on **Friday, June 4th, 2010** in the Hörsaal 4 of the JKU.

The idea is that people from the different departments (RICAM, RISC, JKU Algebra department, etc.) and generally all who are interested in algebra come together and give a brief overview of their current research - just so that people know what the others are doing.

Presentations should be no longer than 10 minutes, preferably on blackboard, and aiming at a general algebraic audience. If you plan to talk, please send a title to David Sevilla. There is no deadline!

Additionally, we will celebrate Günter Pilz's 65th birthday with an invited speaker: Gerhard Betsch from the Universität Tübingen.
