Manhattan Algebra Day is a joint venture of algebraists of NYC. It was started in the late 1990s as a CCNY Algebra Day at City College. Starting from 2008 Manhattan Algebra Day takes place at the Graduate Center of CUNY in the beginning of December as the culmination of the Fall Semester activities of several algebraic seminars: New York Group Theory Seminar, Algebra and Cryptography Seminar, and New York Algebra Colloquium.
