## Streetfest

#### John Baez

#### July 11-21, 2005

Ross Street is probably the leading mathematician in the field
of n-categories; he teaches at Macquarie University in Sydney,
Australia.
On July 11-16 2005 there was a conference at Macquarie in honor
of his 60th birthday. Technically this conference was called
Categorical
Methods in Algebra, Geometry and Mathematical Physics, but
in practice everyone called it the Streetfest. The party continued
during July 18-26 at Australian National University down in Canberra:
there was a workshop on the same subject, also in honor of
Street's birthday. Over this two week period there was a total of
61 talks on a vast range of subjects, from string theory to number
theory, all touching on categories in one way or another.

For now, you can see some photos of this conference
here. I'll improve this page someday.
