The mathematically correct name is Gee Cube, not "gee three" :) .

The next G3 conference will take place there on Thursday-Sunday, March 21-24, 2013. Come on Wednesday, March 20, or earlier. We start in the morning on Thursday, and finish by noon on Sunday. The talks will be at the hotel. As usual, we will begin with several educational talks. Those are meant to be introductory talks in areas related to geometric group theory and intended for general audience.

Organizers: Josh Barnard, Igor Belegradek, Ben McReynolds, Igor Mineyev.
No registration fee is required for the conference. We are grateful for the support from the National Science Foundation.

Do not be affraid to meet people whom you see for the first time. This has been intentionally arranged for the purpose of interaction.

If you'd like to receive future G3 announcements (about once a year), please send a brief request to mineyev math uiuc edu. If you are planning to attend this conference, send an email to dmcreyno math purdue edu.

The preliminary list of participants: Josh Barnard (U. South Alabama), Igor Belegradek (Georgia Tech), Oleg Bogopolski (Düsseldorf, Germany), Matt Clay (U. of Arkansas), Pallavi Dani (LSU), Jonas Deré (KU Leuven, Belgium), Gert-Jan Dugardein (KU Leuven, Belgium), Funda Gultepe (Oklahoma), Matthew Ryan Haulmark (Wisconsin-Milwaukee), Kate Juschenko (Vanderbilt), Richard Kent (Wisconsin), Yoshikata Kida (Kyoto U., Japan), Rostyslav Kravchenko (U Chicago), Sean Lawton (UT Pan-America), Igor Mineyev (UIUC), Ivan Mineyev (Yankee Ridge ES), Roman Mineyev (Urbana MS), Dave Witte Morris (Lethbridge, Canada), Piotr Nowak (U. of Warsaw, Poland), Priyam Patel (Rutgers), Kathleen Petersen (Florida State), Brian Ray (UIUC), Pascal Rolli (ETH, Switzerland), Sarah Wauters (KU Leuven, Belgium), Andrzej Zuk (Paris 7, France).

Hotel information.

Travelodge, 6200 Padre Blvd, South Padre Island, Texas.
All hotel questions should be addressed to Igor Belegradek (ib math gatech edu) who will arrange hotel registration for all participants; please email him your arrival departure info as well as special hotel requests, if any.

If you are self-supported, please call the hotel at (866)601-6200 to make a reservation; when calling, mention the mathematically incorrect group name: G3. If calling the hotel presents any hardship, please send email to Igor Belegradek for help.

Due to limited funds, the expectation is that junior participants will share the room (a standard motel room with 2 beds). A participant can have a room all to himself/herself but in that case half of the room needs to be paid from other sources (else the conference will run out of money).

Schedule and abstracts.

Giving a talk, travel/accommodations support.

We welcome interested graduate students, recent Ph.D., women, and minorities to apply. If you are interested in giving a talk at the G3 conference or to be supported for travel/accommodation, please send an email at dmcreyno math purdue edu with a short description of your research, an abstract of the proposed talk, and any other information you find relevant. Mention if you are planning to attend, and whether this is contingent upon travel support from G3.

A certain time during the conference will be devoted to poster sessions/discussions; please do use this option. Participants are encouraged to bring their articles/preprints (one or multiple copies); there will be a designated place to display them for the duration of the conference.

If you'd like to have a G3 sweatshirt
