Deerfield Beach FL, USA
There is an NSF grant to help support attendance at the January MAMLS in Florida. Applications are due by Nov. 30, and consist of a short email to Lubarsky.Robert@comcast.net with a bit of your relevant background. There is an upcoming hotel deadline too, Dec. 11 resp. 12 for a guaranteed reservation at the special conference rate. See the lodging section below for more details. 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 Venue: Wyndham Deerfield Beach, a beachside resort Website: http://math.fau.edu/richman/FAU2012.html Special theme: Alan Turing as part of Alan Turing Year (see http://www.mathcomp.leeds.ac.uk/turing2012/) 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, and other surprises. Abstracts are at http://math.fau.edu/richman/FAU2012.html. Money: Funding is available! Apply by writing Lubarsky.Robert@comcast.net. Lodging: The talks will be held at the Wyndham Deerfield Beach, http://www.wyndhamdeerfieldresort.com/, literally across a narrow street from the beach. Conference attendees are offered rooms 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. Reservations toll free 24 hours at (800) 426-0084; mention MAMLS to get the special rate. 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 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. 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.
