Titles and Abstracts: TBA
The conference will be held in the UIC Math Department, which is located in the Science and Engineering offices building (SEO, 851 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60607). There will be signs with directions to the lecture room.
Traveling by car: UIC is easily accessible by car, and is located just off of either the 90/94 or 290 interstates. If you are coming into UIC, it's best to park at the Halsted Parking Structure at the NE corner of the Taylor and Halsted intersection.
Traveling by train/bus: UIC is also close to Chicago's Union Station with convenient Amtrak trains / Megabus routes to many locations in the region. A cab to UIC from Union Station should cost under $10. The Greyhound station is also very close by, and an easy walk to UIC.
Traveling by air: Chicago has two major airports, O'Hare (ORD) and Midway (MDW), and it is easy to get to UIC from either one.
If you are flying into O'Hare, you can take a Blue Line train (costing $5) into the city (towards the loop or Forest Park) which stops right next to the UIC campus (at the UIC/Halsted station). For reference, a taxi from O'Hare to downtown will cost around $45 before tip (and can be paid with a credit card).
If you are flying into Midway, you can take an Orange Line train (costing $2.50) into the city (towards the loop), which will allow you to transfer to the Blue Line (at the Harold Washington Library station) which stops right next to the UIC campus (at the UIC/Halsted station). For reference, a taxi from Midway to downtown will cost around $25 before tip (and can be paid with credit card).
Accommodations: We will make hotel reservations directly for participants receiving support from the conference. All other participants should make their own arrangements.
Important Information about Travel Reimbursement : Visitors who will receive funding from NSF must fly a US carrier in order to receive airfare reimbursement. When US carriers have code-share agreements with foreign carriers, you may use a foreign carrier only if the flight number has a US carrier name. If you are not a US citizen or permanent resident, please do not make your own travel arrangements, but contact us for travel arrangements.
We are greatful for the generous support of the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, the Visitors' Fund and the National Science Foundation.
