Below is the tentative schedule for SUMIRFAS 2004. The final schedule
will be posted on the Workshop in Linear Analysis and Probability page:
The Home Page also contains other information about the Workshop,
including a list of participants and a schedule of seminars.
Housing: Contact Cheryl Williams, cherylr at math.tamu.edu, or Mary Chapman,
mary at math.tamu.edu, (979/845-3621, office; 979/ 845-6028, fax) for help
with housing. Please specify the type of accommodation
you desire (smoking or nonsmoking), which night(s) you need the room,
and roommate preference, if applicable.
We expect to be able to cover housing, possibly in a double room,
for most participants, from support the National Science Foundation has
provided for the Workshop. Preference will be given to participants who
do not have other sources of support, such as sponsored
research grants. When you ask Cheryl or Mary to book your room, please
let them know if you are requesting support. Rooms in CS are tight the
weekend of SUMIRFAS, so please act ASAP.
Dinner: There will be a dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 7th,
at Imperial Chinese Restaurant,, 2232 S. Texas Ave. College Station.
The cost for the subsidized dinner is $15 per person for faculty and $10
per person for students. Please tell Cheryl Williams or Mary Chapman,
if you (and spouse or companion, if applicable) will attend.
Checks should be made out to Math Dept., TAMU.

PAYMENT MADE BY August 6th. **
