The 2012 Midwest Geometry Conference will take place May 12-13, 2012 at the University of Oklahoma, located in Norman, Oklahoma. Whereas the Midwest Geometry Conference had been an annual meeting since its founding in
1991 until 2007, this 2012 conference is committed to revive the Midwest Geometry
Conference. Everyone is welcome! Minorities,
women, persons with disabilities, graduate students, recent Ph.D.s, postdoctoral researchers,
junior faculty, and high school math teachers are especially
encouraged to participate. There will be *no* registration fee. Lectures will take place in Physical Sciences Building. There will be a conference dinner on Saturday night, and there will be no fee to attend.

The conference will highlight
recent developments and new research directions in a number of areas that include (but are not limited to): *p*-harmonic geometry, minimal varieties, geometric flows,
complex and Riemannian geometry, conformal geometry, geometry of submanifolds,
convex geometry, stochastic differential geometry, integral geometry, algebraic geometry, geometric measure theory, metric geometry, partial differential equations, several complex variables, Finsler
geometry, mathematical physics, and related problems.
