Having been through the process of finding and applying for postdoc positions in Europe over the last couple of years, here is now the big list that I wished someone had given me a few years ago.

## String conferences in 2011

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on April 4, 2011

Some upcoming string-related conferences:

- Number Theory and Physics at the Crossroads (Banff, 8-13 May)
- Three String Generations at IHES (16-20 May)
- String-Math (UPenn, June 6-11)
- Hodge theory and string duality (Banff, 4-9 Dec)

Starting in January 2012, there is also a six-month programme at the Newton Institute on Mathematics and Applications of Branes in String and M-theory.

## ICM 1950 articles

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on February 1, 2011

As pointed out on MathOverflow and elsewhere, all ICM proceedings up to 2006 have been made available in searchable format at the IMU website. I have started skimming through some of these and will post here direct links to the articles that seem the most interesting. From 1950, I particularly like the following:

- Zariski: The fundamental ideas of abstract algebraic geometry (pdf, djvu)
- Weil: Number theory and algebraic geometry (pdf, djvu)
- Hurewicz: Homotopy and homology (pdf, djvu)
- Eilenberg: Homotopy groups and algebraic homology theories (pdf, djvu)
- Chern: Differential geometry of fiber bundles (pdf, djvu)
- Whitehead: Homotopy groups of spheres (pdf, djvu)
- Eckmann: Complex-analytic manifolds (pdf, djvu)

The full list of ICM 1950 articles is here: Volume I, Volume II.
