Agenda Click here

This conference will reflect Robert MacPherson's lifelong passion for geometry, his broad range of mathematical
interests, and his commitment to students and young mathematicians. The lectures are expected to be addressed
to a wide audience.

Some funds are available for travel and accommodation for students and young mathematicians attending the conference.
To apply for support send a statement with a description of interests and accomplishments to Michelle Huguenin,
(, at the Institute for Advanced Study, School of Math, Einstein Drive, Princeton, NJ 08540.
In addition, have a letter of recommendation by a mathematician, who knows you, in your field, and your
CV sent to the same address.

REGISTRATION FOR THE MEALS IS REQUIRED. (Speakers do not need to register.)

REGISTRATION FOR THE CONFERENCE IS REQUIRED. (Speakers do not need to register.)

Although there is no registration fee, because SEATING IS LIMITED BOTH IN THE CONFERENCE ROOM

In addition, in order for our chef to prepare enough food, we need to have a headcount for the meals.

Please note that conference attendees are expected to pay for their lunch. Approximate range of prices
is $4.00 for a salad to $9.00 for an entree. Vegetarian lunches will be available.
