There will be a buffet dinner on Saturday evening after the conference.
Participants will be asked to contribute a nominal fee ($15 general, $10 for
graduate students) to help cover the expenses of the dinner.
It is very unlikely that we can support any established mathematicians.
However, we do have funds to support a few graduate students and
mathematicians just a few years beyond the doctorate. Persons wanting support will need to have a letter from at least one senior mathematician supporting
The parking lot next to the Math/Physics building is gated. The gate
will be closed on Friday but open on Saturday. Permits will be available
at the registration desk on Friday morning to this lot and one behind it
according to availability. Those coming from UNC and NCSU are urged
to car pool.
