-Doug Ravenel (University of Rochester).

In addition, there will be 3 “problem/open-question sessions” with the junior speakers

- Moon Duchin (UMichigan),
- Benjamin Schmidt (Michigan State University)
- Tom Fiore (UMichigan, Dearborn),

on geometric group theory, differential geometry, and homotopy theory. Finally, and most importantly, there will be a large number of 30-minute graduate student talks, ranging in style from the expository to the mini-research talk.
