Southern Regional Algebra Conference (SRAC 2022)

Southern Regional Algebra Conference (SRAC 2022)

The Department of Mathematics hosted (March 18-20, 2022) the Southern Regional Algebra Conference (SRAC 2022). 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 is only the second time the SRAC conference took place in the state of Georgia.  Georgia College was scheduled to host this conference in Spring 2020. However, the conference was postponed due to the pandemic and was held remotely by Georgia College in March 2021 with over 45 participants from across the world.

This year, Georgia College received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Travel Grant to help graduate students and faculty from across the U.S to attend the conference. Georgia College hosted 40 participants from across the U.S and abroad (Iran, England, Mexico, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates) with a total of 29 presentations. All presentations were broadcast live through Zoom, which allowed several researchers to attend the conference remotely and interact with presenters. Attendees were impressed by the beauty of our campus and the technology in the classrooms. SRAC 2022 went in the books as one of the most successful meetings in the history of this conference. SRAC 2023 will be held at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
