View of the Cathedral from 'A Alameda' (Santiago de Compostela)The main purpose of this conference is to celebrate the contributions made by Prof. Peter B. Gilkey in Differential Geometry and Global Analysis.

Prof. Gilkey is close to his 65th birthday, and we would like to take advantage of this occasion to gather experts in these areas in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. This will be a good opportunity to create new contacts and encourage collaboration among mathematicians.

The conference will consist of a series of invited talks by reputable researchers on Differential Geometry and Global Analysis whose research is related to the work of Peter Gilkey. There will also be poster sessions where participants are welcome to present their contributions.

'María Pita' Square (A Coruña)The conference will be comprised of two parts. A scientific session will be held at the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Santiago de Compostela from Monday, 13th December to Thursday, 16th December 2010. In addition, there will be another session taking place at the Univeristy of A Coruña on 17th December, where Peter Gilkey’s career and fascinating mathematical achievements will be reviewed. Transport from Santiago de Compostela to A Coruña will be provided by the organization.
