MEGA's short presentations are primarily meant for researchers to 
contact those interested in their new work. They are primarily ---but 
not exclusively--- targeted at young researchers. In the approximatively 
fifteen minutes speaking time allotted to you, you are invited to 
describe the nature of your research and main results, so that those 
interested will recognize they want to learn more about your work.

Software demonstrations are meant to show new software systems, 
packages, libraries which are of interest to the topic of the conference.

For submitting a short communication or software presentation, please 
send an extended abstract to <mega2007 at ricam.oeaw.ac.at>.

If you submit before march 1, then you get an early notification of 
acceptance or rejection. Later submissions may also be accepted if there 
is time left.

MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry (and its 
equivalent in Italian, French, Spanish, German, Russian etc.), a series 
of roughly biannual conferences on computational and application aspects 
of Algebraic Geometry and related topics, with very high standards. 
Previous meetings were held in 1990 (Castiglioncello, Italy), 1992 
(Nice, France), 1994 (Santander, Spain), 1996 (Eindhoven, Nederland), 
1998 (Malo, France), 2000 (Bath, UK), 2003 (Kaiserslautern, Germany) and 
2005 (Alghero, Italy).

Proceedings containing a selection of the papers and invited talks 
presented at previous conferences have been published by Birkhaeuser in 
the series Progress in Mathematics (volumes 94, 109, 143), by the 
Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra (volumes 117, 118, 139, 164), and by 
the Journal of Symbolic Computation (volume 39/3-4 and one double issue 
to appear). We plan to publish selected papers from the conference in a 
special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation.

MEGA 2007 will be held at the "bifeb" (a center for adult education) in 
"Strobl am Wolfgangsee", Austria, from June 24 to 30, 2007.
