A Conference to Celebrate

The Mathematics of MICHELLE WACHS

January 5-9, 2015

University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida

Topic and purpose:

This conference is devoted to algebraic, enumerative and topological combinatorics. In addition to lectures on topics of current research interest, the conference will provide sufficient time for informal collaboration.

With this conference, we want to honor Professor Michelle Wachs of the University of Miami, who is a leader in the field. Professor Wachs has made many important contributions to the mathematical community through her research and service, and has served as a role model for a large group of successful women in her field. The conference should provide inspiration to the next generation.
