All talks are in Swift Hall 107, with coffee and a light breakfast before the first talk. Immediately following the last talk, there will be a reception in Harris Hall 108. The math department is in Lunt Hall and there is parking in the lot just north of Lunt.

Note: Swift Hall is immediately east of Lunt Hall. Don't confuse Swift Hall with Annie May Swift Hall, which is further away.
