Invited Paper Session 
Metro Toronto Convention Centre 
This talk will provide an overview of the contributions made by Jerry Sacks in the early stages of its postdoctoral fellowship program, as seen through the lens of an NSF-funded infrastructure project. This interdisciplinary project involved a number of research centers from across the US. The talk will cover some of the project's key research questions, many of which were shaped by Jerry, its connections to later work, and the collaborative atmosphere and social environment that Jerry fostered as part of the working life at the institute.
