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.
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
resume these regional meetings in spring 2022,
once it is safe and reasonable to do
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.
