Trends in Low-Dimensional Topology is a broad audience research seminar focused on answering the question "what do you do" -- which is to say, on providing accessible accounts what people research in low-dimensional topology these days. (For our purposes, low-dimensional topology is the study of 2-, 3-, and 4-manifolds, their symmetries, and related objects and invariants.) One of our goals is to provide visibility for early career researchers, though senior researchers are also encouraged to apply.
The seminar will take place on Tuesdays at 12 noon EDT; each week will feature two 25 minute talks. Speakers in this seminar are chosen by application. Please send in applications by April 17 to be considered to speak in the first month (there will be a later deadline to speak in the second month) we will respond to all applications by April 23rd.
