Conferences and Meetings:
August 03, 2009 - "Loops, Strings, and Moduli Spaces" Workshop, Chern Institute of Mathematics
Location: Chern Institute of Mathematics, Nankai University, Tianjin, China
Dates: August 3 - 9, 2009
This will be an "Oberwolfach style" meeting, consisting of 40 -50 people, with informal talks organized the week of the conference. The Chern Institute will host the accommodations and food for the week of the conference. These accommodations are available for 7 days (arrival Sunday, August 2 and departure Sunday, Aug 10). The actual workshop will take place Monday through Friday of that week. Unfortunately the Institute does not have funding for travel.
There will be two excursions planned. On Wednesday afternoon there will be an excursion to the Great Wall. Also, for
those staying until Sunday, there will be a day long excursion on Saturday to Beijing. Transportation to these excursions will be
provided by the institute.
There are a limited number of spots available for participants. If you are interested in applying to participate, please email Fei Han, email@example.com at Stanford University as soon as possible. Please indicate your university, your status
(student, postdoc, faculty), and your research interests.
Invitees who have agreed, or tentatively agreed to attend include: Hossein Abbaspour, Nantes; Allexander Berglund, Copenhagen; Carl-Friedrich Bodigheimer, Bonn; Ralph Cohen, Stanford; Soren Galatius, Stanford; Nora Ganter, Melbourne; Ezra Getzler, Northwestern; Veronique Godin, Calgary; Fei Han, Stanford; Kathryn Hess, Lausanne; Po Hu, Wayne State; John D.S. Jones, Warwick; Ralph Kauffmann, Purdue; Toshitake Kohno, Tokyo; Ib Madsen, Copenhagen; Luc Menichi, Angers; Ulrike Tillmann, Oxford; Nathalie Wahl, Copenhagen; Weiping Zhang, Nankai.
June 08, 2009 - RTG Graduate Summer School "Geometry of Quantum Fields and Strings"
Location: University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia
Dates: June 8-20, 2009
The University of Pennsylvania Research Training Group in Mathematical Physics and the Math/Physics Research Group are organizing a RTG Graduate Summer School "Geometry of quantum fields and strings". This two-week workshop will serve as a boot camp for training young researchers who are currently enrolled in mathematics or physics graduate programs. The students accepted to the workshop will be trained in current exciting research directions interfacing algebraic geometry, quantum field theory, geometric representation theory, algebraic topology, and string theory.
Interested students should apply by filling the online application form. Support is available for students from U.S. institutions. The deadline for applications is April 30, 2009. Any questions and inquiries should be directed at the workshop organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
April 17, 2009 - 24th Annual Geometry Festival, in honor of Detlef Gromoll
Location: Stony Brook University; Stony Brook, New York
Dates: Friday, April 17 - Sunday, April 19, 2009
This year's festivall will be held in honor of DETLEF ROMOLL. A continuing grant from the National
Science Foundation makes it possible for organizers to partially reimburse the
expenses of a large number of graduate students, post-docs and younger
faculty who do not have access to travel funds from other sources.
Speakers at this year's festival are:
Christina Sormani, and

March 13, 2009 - Beginning Faculty Session: MAA Southeastern meeting
The MAA Southeastern Section meeting will be held March 13-14 at Belmont College, Nashville, TN. One of the sessions is "Presentations by Beginning Faculty". They encourage beginning faculty to attend and give a 15-minute talk on topics such as their research, an expository, an aspect of teaching or working with students, or an interesting problem/solution or application of a mathematical idea.
Speakers should submit a title and abstract to David Stone and to Program Chair Jim Vandergriff. Complete information is available at http://campus.belmont.edu/maa-se/
