Dear colleagues,

It is a pleasure to announce the first Chow Lectures which will take place in Leipzig, Germany, from

May 22nd until May 24th 2017.This event is sponsored jointly by the University of Leipzig and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Sciences. This is a new lecture series named after Wei-Liang Chow, the celebrated mathematician who received his doctoral degree at Leipzig in 1936.

We expect to have limited funding for early-career mathematicians. More information will be made available on the website.

We kindly ask you to forward this announcement to anyone you think might be interested.

Yours sincerely,
