Southeastern regional
mathematical string theory meeting




This is the webpage for the southeastern regional mathematical string theory meeting, held every six months (early April and early October), often at Duke University but occasionally elsewhere.

Next meeting:

The fall 2020, spring 2021, and fall 2021 meetings have been cancelled, b/c of the covid pandemic, and we are not planning to hold an online version. We currently hope to resume these regional meetings in spring 2022, once it is safe and reasonable to do so.

UPDATE: we are not resuming in spring 2022, the soonest we will resume is fall 2022.

We had previously planned to hold a regional meeting in March 2022 at UVA in Charlottesville, VA, as a special session at the AMS spring southeastern sectional meeting.

Unfortunately, due to covid concerns, we have decided to cancel our participation in that AMS meeting.
