UAlbany to Host the 5th Northeast Analysis Network Conference on September 16 and 17
The conference will consist of two one-hour lectures by Sijue Wu (the "Excelsior Lecturer"). The first Excelsior Lecture will be of an expository nature and will be accessible to junior mathematicians and non-experts. Other participants are also invited to give shorter talks. The conference will start at 10AM on Friday (with coffee and snacks available at 9:30AM) and will end no later than 4PM on Saturday.
Further, there will be an outreach workshop held during the lunchtime of September 17 on the topic of tips and strategies for successful mathematics grant writing (which will be run by Alan Greenleaf). There will also be a conference dinner held on the evening of September 16.
Sijue Wu is the Robert W. and Lynne H. Browne Professor of Mathematics at the University of Michigan. Professor Wu is a world renowned expert in PDEs, specializing in the mathematics of water waves. Among her many awards, she was awarded the Ruth Lyttle Slater Prize in 2001, and was awarded the Silver and Gold Morningside Medal in 2001 and 2010 respectively, becoming the first female mathematician to win the gold medal. Further, she was invited to speak at the 2002 ICM in Beijing and elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2022.
