The conference is now over. This information on these pages will not be updated further.

During the month of September, 2003, the Department of Mathematics at the University of Western Ontario will host a program on homotopy theory and its applications to other areas. Gunnar Carlsson, Paul Goerss, Ieke Moerdijk, Jack Morava and Fabien Morel will be in residence for parts of the month. All of the events will take place in London, Ontario.

The focus of the month will be a special 5 day version of the Ontario Topology Seminar, beginning on Saturday, September 20 at 9:30 am and ending on Wednesday, September 24 at 4:30 pm. The speakers who have agreed to come are listed below, and a detailed schedule is available. This conference will take place at the London Delta Armouries hotel in downtown London.

In addition, there will be six minicourses at other times during the month given by the five longer-term visitors. Each will consist of two to three lectures. A schedule is available. These courses will take place at the University of Western Ontario.

The organizers are Rick Jardine <jardine@uwo.ca> and Dan Christensen <jdc@uwo.ca>. Please contact either one of us with any questions. If you think you might attend, please register online or e-mail one of us. There is no registration fee, but it is important for us to know how many people plan to attend.

This web page will be updated periodically.

Hotel and travel information is available. We recommend you book a hotel room right away, as the conference overlaps with homecoming weekend at Western. We have two blocks which will be released on August 19.

The conference is supported by the Fields Institute, the NSF, and NSERC.
