Topology Festival

May 18-21, 2006

Thank you!

The 44th Annual Cornell Topology Festival featured 11 one-hour invited talks, a table for preprints, and much opportunity for conversation. Several speakers were selected from a special area of emphasis, algebraic topology and its applications. Gunnar Carlsson and Jesper Grodal gave workshop lectures on this area. In addition, the speakers held a panel discussion on recent developments in topology.

Social activities included an opening reception, a banquet at ZaZa's Cucina, two working luncheons, and a picnic featuring lamb roasted over an open barbeque pit. Travel grants were available to young mathematicians, women, and minorities, and a significant number took advantage of these. Ninety-six mathematicians attended the festival. Thanks to all the participants for making the 2006 festival a success!
