Janusz Konieczny, professor of mathematics, gave a talk, *Maximal Commutative Subsemigroups of a Finite Semigroup*, at the AMS Special Session on Recent Trends in Semigroup Theory, at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, Denver Colorado, January 2020. The talks at the special session were by invitation only. Konieczny’s talk contained the research done during the sabbatical leave in the fall of 2017.

## Konieczny Publishes in Journal of Algebra

Janusz Konieczny, professor of mathematics, co-authored a research article, *Conjugacy in inverse semigroups*, published in the Journal of Algebra. The journal’s website reads:

“The *Journal of Algebra* is a leading international journal and publishes papers that demonstrate high quality research results in **algebra** and related computational aspects. Only the very best and most interesting papers are to be considered for publication in the journal. With this in mind, it is important that the contribution offer a substantial result that will have a lasting effect upon the field.”
