GTA: Philadelphia 2024 is the 9th annual Graduate Student Conference in Algebra, Geometry, and Topology (GSCAGT), to be held on-campus at Temple University in Philadelphia from Friday, May 31 to Sunday, June 2, 2024.
This conference aims to expose graduate students in algebra, geometry, and topology to current research, and provide them with an opportunity to present and discuss their own research. It also intends to provide a forum for graduate students to engage with each other as well as expert faculty members in their areas of research. Most of the talks at the conference will be given by graduate students, with four given by distinguished keynote speakers.
This event is sponsored by the Temple University Graduate School, Temple University Department of Mathematics, and the NSF.
The organizers of GTA: Philadelphia share the values and committment expressed by the American Mathematical Society when it comes to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion:
"The American Mathematical Society recognizes the breadth of people, thought, and experience that contribute to mathematics. We value the contributions of all members of our mathematics community to improve mathematics research, education, and the standing of the mathematical sciences. We welcome everyone interested in mathematics as we work to build a community that is diverse, respectful, accessible, and inclusive. We are committed to ensuring equitable access to mathematics opportunities and resources for people regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, veteran status, immigration status, or any other social or physical component of their identity."
Conference events will be located at 1925 N 12th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122, in SERC (the Science Education and Research Center).
