Unstable Homotopy Theory:

A Conference in Honour of Paul Selick

hosted by the Fields Institute at the University of Toronto

Organizers:
Lisa Jeffrey, University of Toronto
Don Stanley,University of Regina
Stephen Theriault, University of Southampton

Online registration has now closed.
On-site registration available during conference. Registration: $25, Banquet tickets: $60/each

Overview

This two day conference will celebrate the career of Paul Selick. It will gather together many of Paul's coworkers, students and friends, and give an opportunity for both senior and more junior leaders in homotopy theory and related areas to discuss both past achievements and future directions. There will be five talks each day with ample time left for free discussion. A conference dinner will provide a valuable social occasion.
