International Conference on Toric Topology
Monday 29 May - Saturday
3 June, 2006
Osaka City University, Osaka, Japan
29 May - 3 June, 2006
The goal of this conference is to introduce and explore some of the
themes of research in the subject of toric topology. The conference
will provide an opportunity for interaction between people who work on
different aspects of torus actions, such as topological, combinatorial,
and symplectic- or algebro-geometric. We hope that the conference will
provide an opportunity for researchers in a wide range of fields to
interact. As such, we hope to arrange for a mix of survey talks and
research talks (or talks that are a little of both).
This conference is supported in part by the
21COE program at Osaka City University
Participants interested in this conference might also
