Santa Barbara Summer Conference in Geometry 

Santa Barbara  July 21-24, 1999 

The main goals of the conference are twofold: first, bringing together the leading experts, to survey the recent remarkable progress in geometry and topology, to report the current developments, and to point to new directions of research; seocnd, further stimulating the fruitful interactions between mathematics and physics. For these purposes, the conference is coordinated with the three-week program "Workshop on Geometry and Physics" from July 26 to August 13, in the Institute of Theoretic Physics, UCSB. To help defray the cost of attending the conference, funding from NSF and UCSB is available for participants, with priorities given to graduate students and young mathematicians without research grants
