About the conferenceThe annual Graduate Student Topology and Geometry Conference returns to Notre Dame on the weekend of April 6-7, 2013, for its eleventh edition, having developed a successful history of bringing together graduate students, young faculty and leading researchers in the area. Most of the space is dedicated to short talks (30 min) by graduate students in various levels (that can be expository or present original research), complemented by young faculty talks and keynote addresses by internationally recognized geometers and topologists. Although the conference has always been held in a university in the Midwest, it has taken on a national profile and now attracts participants from all over the United States and beyond.

As of now, if we were to take more registrations, we would not be able to safely fit the number of participants in our auditoriums or provide coffee-break for everybody. In the near future, however, we might reopen registration with a waiting list, and depending on how many people confirm or withdraw their attendance we might be able to accept more registrations, so check back soon on this website!
