PARTICIPATION

The number of participants is limited to 100. In selecting participants,
the preference will be given to those who would have a presentation on
the subject of the conference. If you would like to attend the
conference, please submit a request as soon as possible, by e-mail only,
to Ilya Vakser (vakser at ams.stonybrook.edu) or Sandor Vajda
(vajda at enga.bu.edu). Include a brief (a few sentences) description of
your research, your full affiliation, position (faculty, postdoc,
student, etc.), address (email and regular), and the day-time phone
number. If you would like to give a talk or present a poster, please
include a half-page abstract. We will start contacting prospective
participants after April 27 to let them know whether their application
is accepted. If your application is accepted, we will communicate with
you regarding the details of registration, accommodation, and travel.  

The early registration fee for the participants of the conference will
be $250 ($150 for postdocs and students). Limited funds are available to
support the participation of postdocs and students. The postdocs and
students, who wish to be considered for the financial assistance, should
indicate this in their application. The assistance will be provided in
the form of reimbursement of travel expenses, after the conference.

The details of the conference will be posted at the conference web site,
http://reco3.ams.stonybrook.edu/conference2003, which will be regularly
updated.
