Texas Geometry and Topology Conference
Serving the Mathematical Community since 1989
The Texas Geometry and Topology Conference (TGTC) is dedicated to
the enhancement of both the educational and the research atmosphere of
the community of geometers and topologists in Texas and surrounding
states. The TGTC has three specific goals:
- The TGTC is committed to bring researchers of national and
international stature to the region to discuss their research and to
interact with mathematicians from Texas and surrounding states.
TGTC provides the community of geometers and topologists from Texas and
surrounding states a convenient forum to meet and share mathematics on
a regular basis. The geographic region is so large that few reasonable
alternatives exist. The conference strongly encourages both individual
research and productive cooperative efforts between schools.
TGTC is committed to the strengthening and enrichment of the
mathematics personnel base. Graduate students, junior faculty, women,
minorities, and persons with disabilities are especially encouraged to

Founded in 1989, the semiannual Texas Geometry and Topology
Conference has become an institution for mathematicians in the
Southwest. The TGTC has been held spring and fall since its founding, a
total of 55 times. The TGTC is partially supported under a grant from
the National Science Foundation. Originally the TGTC was organized and supported through a consortium of four universities: University of Texas, Austin, Texas A&M University, Rice University, and University of Houston. Some years ago, Texas Christian University and Texas Tech University joined in hosting the conference. University of Texas, Arlington joined the consortium in 2012.
The original Texas Geometry and Topology Conference confined itself
primarily to Texas universities and attracted about 40 participants.
Attendance at subsequent conferences has grown steadily and
substantially. In 1991, the scope of the TGTC was permanently expanded
to include essentially all universities and colleges in Texas,
Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. Participants from each
of these states regularly come to the TGTC. Since 1994, fall
conferences have been national events, attracting participants from
around the country and world.
