This conference aims to expose graduate students in algebra, geometry, and topology to current research, and provide them with an opportunity to present and discuss their own research. It also intends to provide a forum for graduate students to engage with each other as well as expert faculty members in their areas of research. Most of the talks at the conference will be given by graduate students, with four given by distinguished keynote speakers.
View the conference poster.
In addition to the keynote speakers above, the weekend will be filled with 30-minute graduate student presentations. These talks may be expository or on original research, and will help graduate students share and learn exciting mathematics in the subjects of algebra, geometry, and topology. If you would like to give a talk, please submit an abstract and title.
All talks will be held in SERC, located at 1915 N 12th St. For location and parking information see the campus map.
We will be providing participant housing at Morgan Hall on campus. More details to follow...
SEPTA is the public transportation authority in Philadelphia. They run all the trains, buses, subways, etc.
Follow signs for 'Ground Transportation' and then 'Trains to Center City'. Get on any train and get off at 'Temple University station' (all trains from the airport will stop here). Pay the conductor on board. Tickets cost $8.
Buy a ticket at one of the ticket counters; tell them you're trying to get to Temple University. Then take one of the following 'Regional Rail' lines and get off at the Temple stop: Chestnut Hill East, Fox Chase, Lansdale/Doylestown, Manayunk/Norristown, Warminster, West Trenton. One quick way to see which line is going to leave for Temple next is using Google maps.
There will be a banquet Saturday night. More information to follow...
