SUBMISSION DEADLINE: The deadline for submitting papers to the Algebra and Lattices in Hawaii-2018 Conference Proceedings is
February 15 February 20, 2018.
This is a conference celebrating three mathematicians who spent their careers at University of Hawaii: Ralph Freese, Bill Lampe, and J.B.Nation.
We will referee short papers (up to 6 pages long, with possible extra 2 pages for references, tables, graphs, or pictures) and publish them with the University of Hawaii publishing service around the start of the conference, in May 2018. Long versions of the papers may be submitted later to a special issue of Algebra Universalis (or another journal of your choice).
A short paper is not equivalent to an extended abstract of a proposed talk, and should contain new results which are proved, or new survey material. Papers may be submitted even if the author cannot attend the conference.
If you plan to give a talk at the conference and prefer to submit an extended abstract (1-2 pages long) instead of a paper, then you need not submit via EasyChair; you may simply send it as an email attachment to the conference email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. Extended abstracts will not be published in the conference proceedings, but will available on the conference web-site.
Submission of contributed papers should be made via Easy Chair using the following

The nightly rate in Lincoln Hall runs between 56 and 80 USD, depending on the type of room requested. Registered participants can contact the East-West Center Housing Office at (808) 944-7805 and mention their association with the “Algebras and Lattices in Hawai’i” conference.
