Abstract Submission

In recent weeks the registration for our conference has spiked. As a way to accommodate interest in this event, we will be live streaming the plenary sessions for free. The plenary sessions will also be available for viewing after the conference. The livestream will be available at http://proof.utoronto.ca/conference/livestream/

At this late date, it is impossible for us to change the conference venue. If demand for registration continues to grow, we will use the livestream at the conference to project plenaries in an overflow room.
