The breadth and impact of Jon's achievements in mathematics and its advocacy are extraordinary. These will be commemorated in five themes around which the conference will be organised:

Each theme will be opened by a keynote address by the chair or delegated key collaborator of Jon in the area, reflecting upon Jon's work in the field and its impact.

All talks are by invitation. Anyone interested in speaking should contact the chair of the relevant theme or the overall conference chair to request an invitation. While we will do our best to fit you in, the number of talks is limited and we expect interest will be high, so don't be disappointed if we are unable to accommodate you.

A proceedings will be published by Springer, edited by Brailey Sims.
