The 12th annual graduate student topology and geometry conference will be at UT Austin this April. The registration deadline is coming up on February 1. The website for registration and more information is http://ma.utexas.edu/conferences/gstgc14/. Many of the talks are given by graduate student participants, and we have lots of interesting faculty speakers in a range of topology/geometry topics. I encourage all grad students to register and submit a talk proposal (expository or original research).
