PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 7. You must register before March 7 if you wish to attend the pizza supper or the banquet, to receive support, or to receive assistance in making hotel arrangements.
An informal supper, pizza and beer (and soft drinks, of course), will be available at the hotel after the last talk on Friday evening. A banquet is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, March 15. A light breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings, lunch on Saturday, as well as refreshments during breaks will be provided.
The Friday afternoon talk will be held at the Regal University Hotel, as will the supper that evening. The Saturday and Sunday talks will be held in Physics 114 on the Duke campus (The mathematics department is in the Physics building). The banquet on Saturday night will be held at the Regal University Hotel.
As is customary, the first talks will take place on Friday afternoon beginning around 4:30 PM and the last talk will end on Sunday at noon. There will be one talk on Friday, four on Saturday, and two on Sunday morning. All of the talks will be held in 114 Physics Building (the building housing the Mathematics Department).
In addition, note that the Mathematics Department colloquium will be held at 3:00 PM and will be of interest to the participants in the geometry festival.
