The 39th meeting of the Texas Geometry and Topology Conference will be held on February 22 - 24, 2008 at Texas Tech University. There are no registration fees, so everyone is welcome. However, please register by February 10, 2008 if you plan to attend so we can estimate the number of attendees.

The conference is committed to the strengthening and enrichment of the mathematics personnel base. We will be able to offer some support for expenses. Graduate students, junior faculty, women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are especially encouraged to participate and to apply for support.
