The aim of this conference is bringing together mathematicians from three disciplines within algebra, namely Real Algebra, Valuation Theory, and Quadratic Form Theory. These three fields have been in permanent interaction, but conferences specifically devoted to those interactions have been quite rare in recent years.
The conference is organised by Karim Johannes Becher, Tim Netzer, Daniel Plaumann, and Claus Scheiderer. It is supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and by the Zukunftskolleg at the University of Konstanz.
The deadline for registration has passed. If you are interested in participating and have not yet registered, please contact the organisers as soon as possible (firstname.lastname@example.org).
