Conference

Baylor Analysis Fest

"From Operator Theory to Orthogonal Polynomials, Combinatorics, and Number Theory"

has been postponed!

 

Dear colleagues!

We regret to inform that due to current curcumstances affecting national and international travel and social gathering, the conference is postponed. The new dates will be announced once the global situation becomes clearer. However, we will keep on this page the information regarding the conference.

The conference is organized around topics of Analysis such as Operator and Spectral Theory, Special Functions and Orthogonal Polynomials, and their connections with Combinatorics, Probability Theory, and Number Theory.

We will also celebrate Lance L. Littlejohn’s accomplishments in building the mathematics department at Baylor University for well over a decade now.

Practical information:

Financial Support: Limited financial support is available to support the local expenses of the participants without external support. Junior researchers, graduate students and members from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply for financial support.   

Wi-Fi connection: By all means plan on using eduroam if you have it. If you don't have it, get it now if your institution is a member. Other possibilities exist but are far inferior and cumbersome to organize. 

Parking: If you plan to park a car on campus during the conference, please use this link (and continue on the next page by clicking on "Click Here to Register for a Visitor Permit" and later, "Are you a visitor?") to register as a visitor.  The visiting parking slots comprise the first 3 rows starting from the left when confronting the main entrance of Sid Richardson, the mathematics building (between 3rd and 4th street); they are marked in green. (Faculty and Staff parking slots are are to the right of the visitor slots and marked in yellow.) See the following map:

Conference Fee: $100. It covers lunches and coffee breaks during the conference.
