The Cascade Topology Seminar is designed to foster contacts between researchers, including graduate students, in similar fields across Western Canada and the Pacific Northwestern United States. This seminar has met twice per year for over 25 years, and has helped to establish contact between many researchers who are very broadly interested in topology. This meeting of the Cascade Topology Seminar comes at the nexus of several other activities in topology within this geographic area: this 2-day seminar comes in the middle of many activities related to a PIMS collaborative research group in Applied, Algebraic and Geometric topology, and follows the BIRS workshop Women in Topology II. Both of these activities provide a unique opportunity to bring a more global community of topologists in contact with topologists in the Cascade region. The goal of this workshop is to foster interaction between these diverse groups of topologists, with a particular emphasis on increasing the interaction of topologists in the Cascade region with topologists in under-represented groups.
