|August 23, 2014|
Confirmed Plenary speakers
Each plenary speaker will give 1 talk each of 50-60 minutes.
Confirmed Invited speakers
The invited speakers will NOT be giving "conventional" talks, but rather will be hosting parallel "problem sessions" in their respective areas of expertise, namely:
There will also be a large number of graduate student talks, i.e.
NOTE: the conference explicitly welcomes and actively solicits from all graduate students
We welcome all graduate students working in all fields of geometry-topology to submit applications/proposals for these talks, in order to give participants a broad taste of many areas of geometry-topology. In particular, beginning graduate students who do not yet have PhD supervisors or even advanced undergraduates would be considered for giving expository talks, if they submit a good proposal for such a talk.
We have funding available for a small number of Canadian students to participate in the conference. Some preference will be given to students proposing to give a talk. Please use the `Travel funding application for Canadian students' above (open shortly). The deadline for application is February 14, 2010.
