Please register for the conference if you want to be reimbursed for travel and accommodation. If not driving from their locations, participants should plan to fly to Stillwater Airport (SWO). Local transportion will be arranged (to and from SWO). Our conference is supported by NSF Grant DMS-1806896. With this funding, we will provide travel and lodging support for graduate students and junior participants, with support for more senior participants as our budget allows. Please note that we can only use NSF funding to support participants who are either US citizens or at a US institution. We ask that graduate students have their advisors send Neil Hoffman neil(dot)r(dot)hoffman(at)okstate(dot)edu a short email explaining the relationship between the conference and their research project.
The conference hotel is Home2Hilton (note this changed). If you are booking your own room, please call them (405-372-2550) and ask for the rooms reserved by the math department. Graduate students should try to share rooms. It would be a great help to us if preferred roommate choices are listed on the registration form. Otherwise, we will make the assignments ourselves.
As noted above all talks will take place in the math building. Below is a map with the conference hotel, math building, and dinner location marked. (If you don't see anything here, try this link.)
