On July 8, 2019, the day before the start of the 2019 SIAM conference on Applied Algebraic Geometry, we will hold a one-day symposium to celebrate the work and career of our esteemed colleague Bruce Reznick.
Bruce is well-known to many people for his work in the general area of combinatorial-algebraic-analytic investigations of polynomials and numbers. In particular, Bruce is well-known for his seminal contributions to the study of sums of squares and positivity of polynomials. Bruce is also known as a caring teacher and mentor. He has been a generous and kind supporter and mentor of young researchers for many years.
The symposium will take place at the University of Bern, the same venue as the SIAM conference. More precisely:
All talks will be at Fabrikstrasse 8, H\"orraum Room-no. B 101 in the campus of the University of Bern
Talks will start at 10:00 am and continue until about 5 pm (with a lunch break)
The event will conclude with a dinner in his honor (see information below).
There is no fee to attend the symposium, but please notify via email to both organizers (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) if you plan to attend.
