Welcome Party and Registration

Our Welcome party will be held in Coffee room HH-3022 of Henrietta Harvey (Mathematics building) on Wednesday August 27 at 6 - 8 pm. We plan to combine it with registration for the workshop. The registration fee is $60 (full fee) and $30(student/postdoc fee). For those who misses the party, the registration will continue next morning at 9 am prior to the opening lecture by Victor Kac. Both registration and the lecture will be in A-1043. Our coffee breaks will be in AAC room HH-2010. From downtown one can reach the campus of Memorial University by walking (30 - 40 minutes). The other option is by bus (the quickest route is 15 running twice an hour until 6 pm, cash price $2.25). Bus stop name is Elizabeth Avenue - Front of MUN. The web site of Metrobus is
