June 9, 2020 - June 13, 2020


Planning has begun for Fractals 7. 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.


Go to Fractals Registration to register for the conference.

-  Funding requests are due by March 22nd.

-  Funding decisions will be announced by approximately April 6th.

-  Last day to register is May 15th.

HOUSING:  On-campus housing has been reserved at William Keeton House for interested participants.  Housing information and registration will be sent to participants after funding announcements are sent out in early April.  On-campus housing will be a separate registration from the department Fractals registration and is administered through Cornell Conference Services.  You will be able to indicate if you are interested in housing during the department registration.

Banquet:  A banquet will be held on June 10th in the Physical Sciences Building/Baker Portico Atrium.  Banquet information and registration will be sent to participants in April.

All general inquiries can be sent to:  fractals_math@cornell.edu
