Topology Festival

May 2–5, 2008

Thank you!

Thanks to all the participants for making this year's festival a success!

The 46th annual Cornell Topology Festival was attended by 91 mathematicians. The program featured ten one-hour talks, a table for preprints, and much opportunity for conversation. Two introductory workshops and a panel discussion focused on symplectic topology and geometry.

Social activities included an opening reception, a banquet at Zaza's Cucina, two working luncheons, and a picnic.  Travel grants were available to young mathematicians, women and minorities, and a significant number took advantage of these.


Preprint Table

A Klein bottle donated by Acme Klein Bottles was awarded to a randomly selected contributor to the preprint table — Yanki Lekili — for the preprint Wrinkled fibrations on near-symplectic manifolds.
