UPDATE: New Dates for the Barrett Lectures

We intend to have this meeting in May, 2021. At this moment we are figuring out details regarding the exact dates and format of the meeting. We will provide more information as we reach any decisions.

COVID-19 Update

On March 11, 2020 The World Health Organization  declared the Novel Coronavirus a global pandemic. There is a great deal of uncertainty concerning travel and events. For this reason, and after consultation with the NSF and IMA offices, we have decided to postpone the Barrett Lectures. We are planning to hold them during the Fall. We will provide more information as the situation develops.

We urge everyone to stay safe, informed, and to follow the official CDC guidelines.
