G4G10 (2012) Recap

G4G10 Recap

G4G10 (aka G4GX) – Atlanta, Georgia – March 2012

The conference opened at the Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library with a well-attended exhibition of mathematical art and public lectures on Gardner-related themes. These library events were open to the general public throughout the conference.

Less than two weeks after G4G10 ended, Thomas Malin Rodgers, Jr., the original creator of the inaugural G4G conference in 1993 and the main organizer of all subsequent conferences through G4G10, died after a struggle with cancer. See the Letter from the Rodgers Family.

The G4G Foundation thanks the Simons Foundation was a major supporter of G4G10. Many conference participants also donated money and time, for which we were very grateful.
