The Mathematics Part I and Part II of the TANIGUCHI FOUNDATION have had 41 Taniguchi Symposia so far. In 2000 the TANIGUCHI FOUNDATION will close, and to commemorate it the Mathematics Part I and Part II will jointly hold a public conference, Taniguchi Conference on Mathematics, Nara '98, as follows. This Conference is jointly sponsored by the Taniguchi Foundation and the Mathematical Society of Japan.
Period: December 15 (Tue) - December 20 (Sun), 1998
Place : Naraken Bunka Kaikan in Nara :(Travel)
