Announcements and Conferences: Please click here for announcements and a list of conferences in the near future which may be of interest.

The symplectic geometry seminars are held Mondays 2:10 -- 3 PM in Room SS5017A.
Symplectic Lunches: We meet for lunch on Mondays right before the seminars. If the speaker is an out-of-town visitor, we meet at 12:30 PM in front of Lisa Jeffrey's office (SS 4093) and go to Sylvester's Cafe. If the speaker is a local (U of T or Fields) speaker, we meet for a bag lunch at 1:00 PM in the Math Common Room in Room SS5017B. Please join us.
