Registration: There is no registration fee, but to help our planning please register.

Location: TBA Natural Sciences II, room 1201 (building 402, located at G6 on this map).

Poster Session: There will be a POSTER SESSION. Number theory graduate students and postdocs are invited to present posters on their own research. If you would like to present a poster, please contact Nathan Kaplan by September 19. Please include your name, affiliation, advisor's name, poster title, and brief abstract.

Travel support: Some travel funding is available for participants, with preference given to graduate students and postdocs, especially those presenting posters. We also encourage applications from members of under-represented groups. If you would like to apply for funding, please contact Nathan Kaplan with an itemized estimate of expenses, preferably by September 19. We strongly encourage carpooling.

Dinner: There will be a picnic dinner (Italian buffet) in the evening in University Hills, the faculty housing area adjacent to campus. The cost will be $20, or $10 for graduate students.


By car

From the north: Take I-405 to 73 south, and exit at Bison (there is no toll, despite the confusing signs).
From the south: Take I-5 to 73 north, and exit 73 at Bison (this part of 73 is a toll road).

Take Bison east into campus. To park anywhere on campus you will need a parking permit, which costs $10 for the day. Quarterly or annual parking permits from other UC campuses are honored at UCI. You can buy a permit from the dispenser at the entrance to Lot 16 (takes credit cards or bills, no change given). The closest lot to the lectures is 12A, but 16 and 12B also work. See the map.

By air

If you're flying you should fly to the Orange County airport (SNA) if at all possible. SNA is only a few miles from campus; a taxi will cost about $20.
