| Child Sexual Abuse: A Public Health Perspective Symposium
Registration is now open!
Please join us Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the Moore Center’s fifth annual symposium, Child Sexual Abuse: A Public Health Perspective, at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Sheldon Hall (W1214).
Speakers this year will focus on policies that affect children with problem sexual behaviors and highlight child sexual abuse prevention research that targets school-age children.
- Featured Speakers: This year we are pleased to welcome Johns Hopkins University President Ronald Daniels and Patrick McCarthy, president and chief executive officer of the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
- Free Documentary Screening: “Untouchable” is a documentary that “interweaves intimate portraits of men and women who have been branded sex offenders with the heartbreaking stories of those who have suffered sexual abuse.” Director David Feige will join our panel for a discussion about the film. Watch the trailer.
- Lunch and Learn: Please join us for a luncheon and talk by Moore Center graduate student Geoff Kahn. Catered lunch is $10.
- Child Maltreatment Student Poster Session: Poster presentations on child maltreatment prevention will be presented by students. To submit a proposal, please click here.
As always, the symposium is free and open to the public, however, registration is required. Please forward this email to anyone who might be interested in attending. We hope to see you there.

| Sam Payne 'A tropical motivic Fubini theorem with applications to Donaldson-Thomas theory "
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Speaker: Sam Payne,Yale University
Abstract: I will present a new tool for the calculation of Denef and Loeser’s motivic nearby fiber and motivic Milnor fiber: a motivic Fubini theorem for the tropicalization map. Our method uses Hrushovski and Kazhdan’s theory of motivic volumes of semi-algebraic sets as a substitute for computations with motivic Igusa zeta functions, and allows us to sidestep, in some cases, the absence of an explicit resolution of singularities. Applications include the solution to a conjecture of Davison and Meinhardt on motivic nearby fibers of weighted homogeneous polynomials, and a very short and conceptual new proof of the integral identity conjecture of Kontsevich and Soibelman, first proved by Lê Quy Thuong. Both of these conjectures emerged in the context of motivic Donaldson-Thomas theory.
Based on joint work with Johannes Nicaise.
