In Memory of Professor Robert Strichartz

We will be dedicating the entire conference to Professor Strichartz.   A special session will be scheduled during the conference for all to attend and reflect on their thoughts and memories of Bob.  Bob is appreciated and recognized for his organizing of the Fractals Conference Community in 2002. He will be profoundly missed by family, friends, colleagues, and most of all, the students he mentored and influenced throughout his career. 

A message from the Cornell Department of Mathematics Chair, Tara Holm:


We are excited to announce that the 7th Cornell Conference on Analysis, Probability, and Mathematical Physics on Fractals will be held June 4, 2022 - June 8, 2022

After two consecutive cancellations due to Covid, we are currently planning the 2022 Fractals Conference.  As normalcy returns to our lives, we look forward to hosting an in-person conference once again, collaborating with colleagues around the world, and sharing each others knowledge.  

More information will be posted in the coming weeks/months as plans progress.  Please check back as updates will continue to be posted.

Keep up-to-date on Cornell Covid InformationCornell Covid Visitor Information, and Cornell Covid Event Information.

The purpose of this conference, held every three years, is to bring together mathematicians who are already working in the area of analysis and probability on fractals with students and researchers from related areas. Information will be posted here as it becomes available.

Financial support will be provided to a limited number of participants to cover the cost of housing in Cornell single dormitory rooms and partially support other travel expenses. Students and junior researchers from underrepresented groups in STEM are particularly encouraged to apply for travel funding. Well-established researchers are encouraged to use their own travel funding; the NSF expects that most funds will be expended on otherwise unfunded mathematicians.

This conference supports the Welcoming Environment Statement of the Association for Women in Mathematics.
