The weekend-long TGTC conference at the Mathematics Department of UT Austin features leading researchers in low-dimensional topology, hyperbolic geometry, geometric group theory, gauge theory and symplectic topology.

The TGTC conferences have been running since 1989. This will be the 52nd.


  • Danny Calegari (University of Chicago)
  • Nathan Dunfield (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
  • Benson Farb (University of Chicago)
  • Eli Grigsby (Boston College)
  • Yair Minsky (Yale University)
  • Jessica Purcell (Brigham Young University)
  • Rachel Roberts (Washington University in St. Louis)
  • Martin Scharlemann (University of California, Santa Barbara)


Everyone is welcome, but registration is required, whether or not you are requesting support. Please register as early as possible! There are no registration fees.

TGTC is committed to the strengthening and enrichment of the mathematics personnel base. We will be able to offer some support for expenses. Graduate students, junior faculty, women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are especially encouraged to participate and to apply for support.
