Report on CIMPA Research School on Combinatorial and Computational Algebraic Geometry held at the University of Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria, 11—24 June 2017
This CIMPA Research School was aimed at faculty and advanced graduate students fromNigeria and neighboring countries. Participants were introduced to some basics of algebraicgeometry with an emphasis on computational aspects, such as Gröbner bases and combinato-rial aspects, such as toric varieties and tropical geometry. Participants also learned how to usethe freely available software Macaulay2 for studying algebraic varieties. A total of 65 people, including speakers, assistants, and regular participants attended.
