There will also be shorter talks by workshop participants, and time
reserved for discussion. We intend that lectures and talks should be
at a level accessible to graduate students and postdocs, whom we
especially encourage to attend and speak.
The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute web page has a helpful list of
hotels. The Berkeley Visitor's Bureau also has a list of
hotels. Many Berkeley hotels will give you a discount if you
mention that you are coming for an event held at the university.
There is no fee to register for the workshop. If you plan to attend,
please do us the favor of completing the registration form below, so
that we have an idea how many participants to expect.
Some travel support is available for participants, with priority going
to graduate students, postdocs, and junior researchers without other
sources of support.
To apply for travel support, please email the organizer at the address
below. In your message, include your name, current
institutional affiliation and status (grad student,
postdoc, junior or senior faculty), Ph.D. year and
institution if not a graduate student, indicate what other
support, if any, you have available, and attach a CV. In
the case of graduate students and postdocs, please have your
supervisor email a brief letter of support to the same address.
In order to allow us to offer support in time for participants to make
travel reservations, the target date for applications is May
9. Applications received after that date will only be considered
if sufficient funds remain.
