Organized by the Department of Mathematics at the National University of Singapore, and under the auspices of S.W.I.M.S. or the Singapore-Warwick Initiative in Mathematical Sciences, SISTAG took place from 2 - 6 July 2001 in the National University of Singapore. 


S.W.I.M.S. was a four-year project between the National University of Singapore and Warwick University that commenced since late 2000. It served to encourage greater research interaction between both universities in mutually strong areas of topology and geometry, statistics, dynamical systems and financial mathematics. This symposium was aimed at surveying current research in a broad range of geometry and topology, including differential and algebraic geometry, geometric and algebraic topology and geometric analysis.
