SCHEDULE FOR SUMIRFAS 2007
The Informal Regional Functional Analysis Seminar
August 10 - 12
Texas A&M University, College Station
Talks for SUMIRFAS will also be posted on the Workshop in Analysis and Probability page:
All talks will be in Blocker 165. The Blocker Building is on Ireland St. just south of University Dr. on the Texas A&M campus:
Coffee and refreshments will be available in Blocker 155.
The usual SUMIRFAS dinner will be on August 11. It will be a BBQ at the home of Jan and Bill Johnson.
Gideon Schechtman, and Joel Zinn, are organizing a Concentration Week on "Probability Inequalities with Applications to High Dimensional Phenomena" that will take place August 6 - August 10. The first day will be devoted to introductory talks designed to introduce non experts to the subject.
We expect to be able to cover housing 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 Cara to book your room, please tell them if
you are requesting support. Minorities, women, graduate students, and young
researchers are especially encouraged to apply.
For logistical support, please contact Cara Barton, cara at math.tamu.edu. For more information on the Workshop itself, please contact William Johnson, johnson at math.tamu.edu, David Larson, larson at math.tamu.edu, Gilles Pisier, pisier at math.tamu.edu, or Joel Zinn, jzinn at math.tamu.edu. For
information about the Concentration Week on "Probability Inequalities with Applications to High Dimensional Phenomena", please contact Joel Zinn, jzinn at math.tamu.edu.
