MAMLS - ALAN TURING MEETING Deerfield Beach, FL, hosted by Florida Atlantic University
What: Mid-Atlantic Mathematical Logic Seminar When: F Jan. 13 (about 2 pm) - Sun Jan. 15, 2012 (about 2 pm) Where: Deerfield Beach, FL, hosted by Florida Atlantic University Website: http://math.fau.edu/richman/FAU2012.html Special theme: Dedicated to Alan Turing as part of Alan Turing Year (see http://www.mathcomp.leeds.ac.uk/turing2012/), commemorating the centenary of his birth. Program: There will be a special session dedicated to Turing's life and times, which will include an address by his famed biographer David Leavitt, as well as other surprises. The speakers for the scientific part will include Wesley Calvert, Martin Davis, Damir Dzhafarov, Joel Hamkins, Pietr Hofstra, Russell Miller, Anil Nerode, Gerald Sacks, Andre Scedrov, Wilfried Sieg, and Robert Soare. Money: Some funding is available to support attendance at the meeting. We are most interested in supporting young researchers and members of groups typically underrepresented in the sciences. Of course everyone is welcome to apply, which you can do by writing me at Lubarsky.Robert@comcast.net. Please include in your request a brief professional biography, as well as a short description of why your attendace at the conference would be useful to yourself or the community. (Please do not be put off by this request for information! In case demand is great, I need some basis on which to make decisions, so I need to know who you are. I have to give the money away one way or another, so apply.) Lodging: You can now make your hotel reservations for the meeting. Such a reservation is subject to availability, so call soon. This is Florida in season, after all. The talks will be held at the Wyndham Deerfield Beach, http://www.wyndhamdeerfieldresort.com/, which is offering rooms to conference attendees at the special rate of 9/night for oceanfront, 9/night for city view, subject to availability, up to Dec. 12. For this beachfront property in season, take my word for it that this is a good deal. To make a reservation, call 954-428-2850 or toll free 24 hours (800) 426-0084 and mention MAMLS to get the special rate. Online reservations are not possible. Alternatively, you could stay at the Comfort Inn Oceanside, http://comfortinnoceanside.com/, just a few blocks away, for prices ranging from 9.95 to 9.95/night, subject to availability, up to Dec. 11. For reservations, call (954) 428-0650 or toll free 866-86-OCEAN and mention MAMLS to get the special rate. If you would like to save even more by rooming with somebody, drop me a line at Lubarsky.Robert@comcast.net and I will act as a clearinghouse for such requests. Please remember, this is in season, so I encourage you to do this at your earliest convenience, as either hotel might eventually get sold out. This is especially important if you want to make a vacation out of this and come early or stay late (remember, M Jan 16 is MLK Day), as space at the special rate is limited. Transportation: Transportation information is at the hotel websites. The closest airports are, in order of increasing distance from the hotel, Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood, Palm Beach, and Miami. From any of those airports, you could take the shuttle, a cab, or the train (http://www.tri-rail.com/) to the Deerfield Beach station and a cab from there. For questions: Lubarsky.Robert@comcast.net.
