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.
