1. Mini-symposium in Honour of Professor Fred Brauer, contribution deadline Jan 10, 2022

We are pleased to announce a virtual minisymposium in honour of Prof. Fred Brauer, who recently passed away after a long and distinguished career in mathematics and mathematical biology.

The event has been timed to celebrate what would have been Fred’s 90th birthday.
A series of talks by three of Fred’s longstanding colleagues will followed by short contributions from others.
You are invited to visit the site (below), register, and, if you like, submit a request for a short (5 min) contribution
– either on the theme of Fred Brauer’s research, or on a personal story or memory of Fred.

Contributions will be accepted until Jan 10, 2022.
We will then inform participants whose contributions are accepted, and finalize the schedule.

We are grateful to PIMS for sponsoring this event.
