PROJECT SUMMARY
GREAT LAKES GEOMETRY CONFERENCE
APRIL 20-21, 2013

The Great Lakes Geometry Conference conference is a well-established conference series that has been annually held in the Great Lakes region. This proposal is for the 2013 edition of this conference, to be held at Northwestern University on the weekend of April 20-21, 2013. The conference this year will bring together eight well-known experts working in the field of geometric analysis. We expect that the conference will attract a large and diverse spectrum of participants. The conference will be widely advertised, using email announcements and posters which will encourage the participation of early career mathematicians, women and underrepresented minorities.

Intellectual Merit. Geometric analysis is an important field of mathematics which has had a large impact on other areas of mathematics and physics. The deep tools of analysis and partial differential equations are used by geometric analysts to tackle problems in geometry. The speakers in this conference include experts in different but overlapping fields: a major theme is the study of Einstein’s equations which appear within the topics of general relativity, complex geometry and Riemannian geometry.

Broader impact. A major goal of this conference is to expose mathematicians from the Great Lakes region, especially junior and women mathematicians and members of underrepresented minorities, to some of the exciting recent developments in geometric analysis. The organizing committee will encourage and support broad and diverse participation in this conference. Priority for travel support will be given to participants who are early career, women or underrepresented minority mathematicians. In addition, the list of invited speakers includes one woman and three recent PhD’s.
