Pre-workshop for Junior Researchers

A half-day pre-workshop for junior researchers, including graduate students and postdocs, will take place on the morning of the first day, before the main workshop begins. The pre-workshop plans to feature simultaneous sessions of lightning talks by junior researchers in areas related to the theme of the conference, including number theory, algebraic geometry, and group theory and representation theory. When they apply for participation/funding, junior participants are invited to apply to give an 8-minute lightning talk about their research, within these themes, by submitting a title and brief abstract. 

Lodging and Parking:

All participants should book hotel rooms on their own. At the Nassau Inn participants will book their own reservations at the public rate. At both the Hyatt Place and Hyatt Regency on US Route 1 there are links that participants may use to book their own rooms at the university contract rate.

If you drive to the university, the only visitor parking on campus is the Stadium Drive Garage. It is about 10min walk from McDonnell Hall where all the talks will take place. Please apply for a parking permit HERE before you arrive. Navigating the current university construction is always a fun and enjoyable challenge- we recommend you give yourself plenty of time for a head start!
