Special Session

Robert J. Daverman has been closely associated with the Workshops in Geometric Topology since their inception. He has also played an important role in the mathematical development of the individual organizers of the series. In recognition of Daverman's many contributions, and on the occasion of his 60th birthday, the organizers are planning a special session in his honor. The special session will take place on Saturday, June 15, at the conclusion of the regular workshop.

The following mathematicians will give one-hour talks at the special session.

  • John Bryant
  • James Cannon
  • Craig Guilbault
  • William Jaco

There will be a dinner in Bob Daverman's honor on Saturday evening. The dinner will held in the Hauenstein and Pfeiffer Rooms at the Frederik Meijer Gardens.

The Special Session is sponsored by the University of Tennessee and Calvin College.
