Winter 2015 Midwest Topology Seminar @ UIC

When: 28 Saturday 2015. Coffee and bagels at 9am, the first talk at 10am.
Where: UIC, Lecture Center F, Room 4. See the map for the building marked LCF.

Pre-seminar colloquium: at 3pm on Friday 27 February, Birgit Richter will give a colloquium in room 636 of the Science and Engineering Offices (marked SEO in the map above).

Hotel: hotel reservations can be made with the Corporate ID "University of Illinois at Chicago" at the Crowne Plaza Chicago Metro Downtown, a 0.7 mile walk from the lecture hall. There are many other hotels in downtown Chicago, although they are slightly farther away from UIC.

Parking: visitor parking is available ($8.50 for the day) in the structures on the northeast corner of Halsted and Taylor. See the map here. We will have parking stickers available.

Restaurants: the restaurants in the West Loop and Greektown are all within walking distance or a short bus ride from campus. Downtown restaurants are also easily accessible by the Blue Line, as are those in the hip neighborhoods of Wicker Park and Logan Square.

Support: we will have support for graduate students and other early-career mathematicians available, for which we gratefully acknowledge the support of the NSF and Northwestern University, via NSF Grant No. DMS-1413786, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. Please request funding via the registration page.
