Description
The Bay Area Differential Geometry Seminar meets around 3 times each year and is a 1-day seminar on recent developments in differential geometry and global analysis, broadly interpreted. Typically, it runs from mid-morning until late afternoon, with 3-4 speakers. Box lunches will be available for purchase and the final talk will be followed by dinner. The schedule (with speakers) will be posted as soon as it becomes available. Please register and also indicate whether you will be attending the dinner afterwards.

Please mention the MSRI as a reference when making reservations by calling 510-548-7920 OR directly on their website. The Doubletree Hotel offers complementary shuttle to and from MSRI. The room rate is $99 per night.
