The topics include geometry in all its various forms (algebraic and differential geometry, geometric representation theory, topology, combinatorics, symbolic computation, commutative algebra, applications to and from physics, etc.) as well as other topics. The talks are intended for a general audience with geometric interests of some form or other.
