The purpose of this conference is to bring together graduate students in topology, let them practice giving talks, learn about new topics, and get to know other graduate students in their field. We will organize get-togethers Friday night, for people who arrive early, and Saturday night, after the conference.

The schedule will consist of talks given by students, as well as a keynote presentation given by Fred Cohen (University of Rochester). Participants are invited to give talks, either short (20-25 minutes) or long (40-50 minutes). The subject need not be original research, but simply something the speaker enjoys and wishes to share. Talks should, in particular, be accessible to an audience of graduate students of varying levels.

We hope this conference will become an annual event hosted at various schools around the country. Last year's conference was at Notre Dame. You can think ahead about whether you might be interested in hosting it next year.
