There will be a special session on “Advances in Symplectic Geometry and Topology” at the Mathematical Congress of the Americas 2013 in Guanajuato from August 5-9. There is some basic information about this at http://www.math.umb.edu/~eduardo/MCA2013/. Some support is anticipated for students and postdocs. I have been asked to pass on this information to students, postdocs, and others who might benefit from attending the session, and I thought the most efficient way to do so would be to post it here.
Meanwhile, there are a lot of other things I would like to write about here, but I have been busy trying to finish the lecture notes on ECH. Almost done, I hope.
