Conference Dinner
at China Road. Cost TBA; will be lower for graduate students and postdocs.


All talks will be in 122 Carnegie Library (blue star on the map below) on the Syracuse University campus. Other points of interest are marked in orange (hotels) and green (food).

Parking in the lots next to Carnegie Library is free for the conference. Enter campus from the East, at the corner of Euclid and Comstock.


We have reserved a block of 20 rooms (2 beds each) at the Crowne Plaza (orange star on the map above) for the nights of the 18th and 19th. The discounted rate is $115/night. Call (315) 479-7000 and refer to the "Route 81 Math Conference". The deadline for reservations is Friday Oct. 11 (sorry this information was originally omitted from the web page). This hotel is about a 25-minute walk from the department.

The following other hotels may also have open rooms if you call individually, but were too full to reserve a block for us.

Sheraton Syracuse University
about 5 min. walk, on the edge of campus
Genesee Grande Hotel
~15 min. walk due north of campus
Parkview Hotel
