22 April 2003
The Midwest Topology Conference for the spring of 2003 will take place at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Saturday April 26, 2003.
The schedule of talks for the conference is
All talks will held in Room 106 Lincoln Hall. Note that this is not the main building of the mathematics department, Altegeld Hall. The math department is hosting a state-wide high school math competition on April 26, so most rooms near the mathematics department are in use. Lincoln Hall is two blocks south of Altgeld Hall on Wright Street. A variety of maps of the campus is available at http://www.uiuc.edu/ricker/CampusMap. Directions for driving to campus can by found at http://www.uiuc.edu/overview/visitors/directions.html.
In case anyone planning to attend the conference is interested in film, Champaign-Urbana is also hosting Roger Ebert's fifth annual Overlooked Film Festival from April 23 to April 27 (http://www.ebertfest.com).
The National Science Foundation has made some funds available to the Midwest Topology Conference, particularly to support participation by junior mathematicians. If you wish to apply for support, please contact Matthew Ando <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
