Happily, some of these will be geometers.
- Satyen Devadoss and Joe O'Rourke will be running an MAA short course based on their new book on Jan 2-3 before the main conference starts.
- I'm running a SIAM minisymposium on computational geometry on Thursday Jan 5 in the morning. We have a great and diverse set of speakers:
- Erin Chambers: Computing interesting topological features on surface embedded graphs
- Tasos Sidiropoulos: Optimal stochastic planarization
- Seth Pettie: An Introduction to Davenport-Schinzel Sequences, Forbidden 0-1 Matrices, and Their Geometric Applications.
- Yusu Wang: Toward understanding complex data: graph Laplacians on singular manifolds.
- Jeff Phillips: Computational Geometry on Uncertain Data
- Eric Price: Geometric Aspects of Compressive Sensing
- Finally, Erik Demaine will be delivering the AMS-MAA-SIAM Gerald and Judith Porter Public Lecture on Saturday, titled "Geometric puzzles: Algorithms and complexity"
So there's lots to do at the JMM if you're interested in geometry. So if you're in the area in January, drop by !
