Topological Approaches to Algebra and Arithmetic Geometry (TAAAG) is a 3 day workshop run for graduate students and early career mathematicians, as a part of the The AGANT (Algebraic Geometry, Algebra and Number Theory) Research and Training Group at the University of Georgia Mathematics Department, and funded by NSF grant DMS-1344994.
The Georgia Summer Workshop In Algebraic Geometry will be an instructional program for graduate students and young PhDs with a focus on the topic "Moduli spaces of sheaves and their enumerative geometry." We will have at least four speakers each deliver 2 lectures on a topic of their choice related to the focus of the workshop, where the first talk is very introductory. We also plan to have other speakers give one hour talks.

In view of the intense activity in integral geometry over the past few years, it seems an auspicious moment for the mathematical sciences community to collect our thoughts on the subject. Our hope is to air the major viewpoints that have been brought to bear on the subject, both in its internal development and in its applications, and in this way stimulate further progress.

Light refreshments will be served.
Graduating Senior Sarah Tammen has been awarded a prestigious NSF Graduate Fellowship. She will use this award to support her graduate studies at MIT. Sarah was winner of the the department's 2015 Charles M. Strahan Award for best junior math major. In the summer of 2014 Sarah participated in an REU at Williams College and in the summer of 2015 she was a a teaching assistant at the Summer Institute for Mathematics at the University of Washington.
President Obama Honors Extraordinary Early-Career Scientists
President Obama today named 105** researchers as recipients of the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the United States Government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers. The winners will receive their awards at a Washington, DC ceremony this spring.
