TITLE: The geometry of kinematic frameworks 
Herman Servatius

Every bar and joint framework has a configuration space which is an algebraic set which can be studied with tools coming from algebra, combinatorics, geometry and topology. We will show some methods of analysis and exhibit some frameworks with curious behavior.
