Fall 2007 Midwest Topology Seminar

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

October 13 2007

The Midwest Topology Conference for the Fall of 2007 will take place at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Saturday October 13, 2007.

The schedule of talks for the conference is

10:00 Nathan Dunfield (UIUC) Actions of mapping class groups on representation varieties of finite groups
11:30 Michael Mandell (Indiana University) K-theory and abstract homotopy theory
2:30 Michael Ching (Johns Hopkins University) An approach to the Goodwillie-Taylor tower of algebraic K-theory
4:00 David Gepner (University of Sheffield) On the Structure of the Motivic Spectra Representing Algebraic Cobordism and Algebraic K-Theory

All talks will be held in Room 245 Altgeld Hall.

Altgeld Hall is the main building of the math department; for those of you who want to use a mapping program the address is 1409 W. Green St. in Urbana. You can see a map at, where there is also a link to the campus's map site.

For those of you coming by car, there is some on-street parking, and the City of Champaign maintains a pay lot on Green St. between 6th St and 5th St. (about two blocks west of the intersection of Wright and Green shown on the map

For those of you coming by train or bus, the bus schedule is available at Both the Red (20) and Green (50) buses go from the train/bus station (Illinois Terminal) to the Illini Union, right next to Altgeld Hall.

This information and any updates will be available at

The National Science Foundation has made some funds available to the Midwest Topology Seminar, particularly to support participation by early-career mathematicians. We have already given promises of support, but in case there are cancellations or unused funds remain, you may wish to contact Matthew Ando <>.
