The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Women in Commutative Algebra – WICA III" workshop in Oaxaca, from June 2 to June 7, 2024.

Women in Commutative Algebra (WICA) is a five-day workshop focused on research collaboration in small groups. The women algebraists, ranging from early-career mathematicians to leaders in the field, will conduct research on cutting edge topics in commutative algebra. The major goals of WICA are the following:

1. Make advances in commutative algebra through state-of-the-art research.
2. Promote the research of women in commutative algebra.
3. Develop a research network among women commutative algebraists by facilitating collaborative interaction between junior and senior mathematicians.
4. Bolster leadership among women researchers.
5. Providing mentoring for early career mathematicians.
6. Advance the academic careers of women algebraists including those from historically underrepresented groups, from universities with a teaching focus and small colleges, and those isolated geographically from potential collaborators.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
