Central Connecticut State University will host the 47th Annual Spring Topology and Dynamical Systems Conference from March 23 to March 25, 2013 at the CCSU facilities in New Britain, CT.
Since its inception in 1967, this conference has been one of the most important and well attended topology conferences in the world. It regularly attracts at least 150-200 participants from many countries from all over the world.
The intellectual merit can be seen by the breath of topics, the depth of the results and the many connections to other disciplines. Several of the most important results in topology have been made public at this conference: the solution to the Normal Moore space problem, the example of a fixed point free map of a tree-like continuum and the existence and robustness of the Lorenz attractor to name a few.
The broader impacts of the conference include the advancement of knowledge and understanding through communication of recent results to a broad and international audience. In particular, this conference is a great opportunity for interaction between American, Canadian, Mexican, European and Asian mathematicians.
The conference encourages participation from underrepresented groups, and travel support provided by NSF benefits the whole of the topological and dynamics community, especially those researchers and graduate students who would otherwise have difficulty attending.
