Here's a slightly different version.

The talks will be given in 115 Avery Hall, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Special this year: KUMUNU 2011 is being held in association with the 2011 Rowlee Lecture,
to be given by David Eisenbud, Friday, April 1, 2011:

Rowlee Lecture Title: Plato's Cave: Some things we know and some things we don't know about shadows on the wall

Abstract: What can you tell about an object from its shadow? There are many versions of this question, important not only in geometry but in data analysis and elsewhere. I'll describe some of these, and then focus on classical geometric constructions having to do with curves and surfaces and things with more dimensions, and some of the mysteries about them that remain.


We hope to provide at least partial lodging support for all participants by direct bill. In order for us to do this you must register using our on-line registration form. We also use the registration information to collect demographic information for use in applying for support next year.


David Eisenbud will give our annual Rowlee Lecture Friday afternoon, April 1.
The KUMUNU program starts Saturday, April 2 at 9:45am.
Reception Saturday evening.
Program ends Sunday, April 3 at 12:30pm.
