In addition, ask that a letter of recommendation, by a mathematician who knows your research, be sent to the same address. Also, please indicate if you wish to share accommodations and a list will be compiled and sent to those interested in sharing.



REGISTRATION FOR THE MEALS IS REQUIRED. (Speakers do not need to register.)


Although there is no registration fee, because SEATING IS LIMITED BOTH IN
