Description
This is a workshop sponsored by MSRI and the NSF focusing on Perelman's recent work on Thurston's geometrization conjecture using Hamilton's Ricci flow. The talks at MSRI are intended for a general audience and follow a week long workshop at AIM intended for a more specialized audience. Attending participants include Ian Agol, Ben Andrews, Sigurd Angenent, Danny Calegari, Huai-Dong Cao, Xiaodong Cao, Andrew Casson, Ben Chow, Toby Colding, Daryl Cooper, Sun-Chin Chu, Ailana Fraser, Michael Freedman, David Glickenstein, Christine Guenther, Craig Hodgson, Jim Isenberg, Misha Kapovich, Bruce Kleiner, Dan Knopf, Bernhard Leeb, John Lott,Peng Lu, Feng Luo, John Morgan, Lei Ni, Peter Petersen, Frank Quinn,Hyam Rubinstein, Rick Schoen, Takashi Shioya, Mu-Tao Wang, Brian White, Takao Yamaguchi, and Shing-Tung Yau.

Show Funding

To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.

Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.

Show Lodging

MSRI does not hire an outside company to make hotel reservations for our workshop participants, or share the names and email addresses of our participants with an outside party. If you are contacted by a business that claims to represent MSRI and offers to book a hotel room for you, it is likely a scam. Please do not accept their services.

MSRI has preferred rates at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza, depending on room availability. Guests can call the hotel's main line at 510-845-7300 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Institute discount. To book online visit this page (the MSRI rate will automatically be applied).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Graduate Berkeley, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-845-8981. When making reservations, guests must request the MSRI preferred rate. Enter in the Promo Code MSRI123 (this code is not case sensitive).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Berkeley Lab Guest House, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-495-8000 or directly on their website. Select "Affiliated with the Space Sciences Lab, Lawrence Hall of Science or MSRI." When prompted for your UC Contact/Host, please list Chris Marshall (coord@msri.org).

MSRI has a preferred rates at Easton Hall and Gibbs Hall, depending on room availability. Guests can call the Reservations line at 510-204-0732 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Inst. rate.
