You are invited to participate in a permanent Midwest Algebra Seminar/Conference organized by DePaul University in cooperation with other universities in the area.

The seminar will meet once a month, usually on Saturdays, and will consist of several talks on topics of popular demand such as Lie Theory, Representation Theory, Ring Theory, Group Algebras, Enveloping Algebras, Hopf Algebras, Quantum Groups, Polynomial Identities, Group Theory, Algebraic Combinatorics, Theory of Invariants, Non-Commutative Algebraic Geometry, etc. We will usually start at 10:30 or 11:00AM, with a lunch break after one or two talks. The talks will either be all 40mins-1hour, or we can have one or two longer talks before noon, and several 20-30mins talks in the afternoon. If there are more speakers on a certain topic, our seminar will take the form of a two-day conference. A good approximation of the program will be posted about three weeks before each seminar.

Due to overwhelming response and until further notice, the seminar will
be working on a two-day conference mode.

The following is a tentative schedule of events:

- October 6-7, Midwest Lie Algebras and Related Topics Conference, at DePaul.
- November 3-4, Midwest Algebra and Group Theory Conference, at DePaul.
- December 1-2, Midwest Algebra and Representation Theory Conference, at DePaul.
- February 1-3, International Hopf Algebras Conference, at DePaul.

The organizers: Allan Berele, Jeff Bergen, Stefan Catoiu, Bill Chin, Barbara Cortzen, Jerry Goldman, Len Krop.
