Each 8 years given that 1961, the collage of Georgia has hosted an immense overseas topology convention geared toward disseminating very important contemporary effects and bringing jointly researchers at assorted phases in their careers. This quantity includes the complaints of the 2009 convention, which include survey and study articles referring to such components as knot thought, touch and symplectic topology, 3-manifold thought, geometric workforce conception, and equivariant topology. between different highlights of the amount, a survey article by way of Stefan Friedl and Stefano Vidussi offers an obtainable therapy in their very important evidence of Taubes' conjecture on symplectic buildings at the fabricated from a 3-manifold and a circle, and an fascinating brief article by way of Dennis Sullivan opens the door to using glossy algebraic-topological suggestions within the examine of finite-dimensional versions of famously tough difficulties in fluid dynamics. carrying on with what has develop into a practice, this quantity features a document on an issue consultation held on the convention, discussing quite a few open difficulties in geometric topology.
