The SageMath history is recent in the world  of computer algebra and was initiated by W. Stein around 2005 with the goal of computing modular forms for congruence  subgroups of SL(2,Z). Since then, many people joined the project and gave birth to a fairly general software for mathematical computations. The aim of this talk is to discuss the history, the goals and the structure of SageMath and briefly demonstrate its possibilities.

This tutorial session is aimed to get you started with computations in SageMath. We will distribute various
 worksheets (from number theory to differential geometry through graph theory) with the hope that you will develop computational skills useful for your own research.

 To attend the session, it is mandatory to have a laptop (or at least to have a neighbor in the audience with a
 laptop). It is preferable, but not mandatory, to have SageMath installed on it. For that purpose, follow the

The p_group_cohomology package for SageMath is able to compute the mod-2 cohomology rings of all groups of order 128
and the mod-p cohomology of the Third Conway group and some other sporadic groups. We will explain the underlying
algorithm (non-commutative F5 algorithm for modules over path algebras) and demonstrate its usage.

This program led to the classification of the cohomology rings of all p-groups of order up to 81 (order 64
being the most interesting) in terms of graded ring isomorphisms.
