# Welcome to the Forum Algebra

Researchers interested in topics related to algebra are spread over various distinct institutes
and departments in Linz. The **Forum Algebra** is a platform for bringing these
people together, making them aware of each other, and encouraging them to collaborate accross
the boundaries of administrational units.

The **Forum Algebra** was founded by Günter Pilz and is hosted at the
Institute for Algebra. It is an
informal community open to all researchers with some connection to Algebra and to Linz.
Most of its members are affiliated with one or more of the following institutes:

- Institute for Algebra,
- Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC),
- Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM),
- Department of Financial Mathematics and Applied Number Theory,
- Department of Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems.
