The 57th meeting of the Texas Geometry and Topology Conference will be held February 17-19, 2017 at Texas Tech University. There are no registration fees, so everyone is welcome. However, please register by February 1, 2017 if you plan to attend so we can estimate the number of attendees.

TGTC is a prestigious event, held every Spring and Fall at one of the participating universities in Texas: the University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, Rice University, Texas Christian University, University of Houston and Texas Tech University.

The conference is committed to the strengthening and enrichment of mathematics personnel. We may be able to offer some support for expenses requested by November 4th, 2016.
