The Summer School will take place from September 10. - 15. 2011 at UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead, California. Lake Arrowhead is a mountain resort less than 2 hours drive East of Downtown LA. (Note that this summer school is one day earlier in the week than previous summer schools.)
The typical participant will be a graduate student or postdoc and not necessarily an expert on the topic, but interested in jointly learning a new subject.
Participants will be required to prepare a 2h lecture on some topic in advance (during the summer), and submit a 4-6 page summary of their topic, at the latest by August 25. 2011. The topics are listed here.
The Summer School is one of a series of Summer Schools funded by NSF grants. It is co-sponsored by DMS 1001535 and by the RTG grant Analysis and Applications at UCLA.
Saturday September 10. will be the arrival day. Beginning Sunday andb ending Wednesday the participants will give the lectures that they have prepared in advance. Departure will be after breakfast on Thursday September 15.
Space is limited to 12 participants.
The NSF grants provide funding for accommodation. A contribution towards travelling expenses may be available upon request. The closest airport is Ontario airport in San Bernardino county. In several previous summer schools, participants arriving at Ontario organized carpooling. There will also be a carpool from UCLA, (leaving 3pm on Saturday, return approximately 12pm on Thursday) that can be joined by out-of-towners flying into LAX.
If you would like to participate, please send an informal email to email@example.com by April 15, 2011; preference will be given to applications received by then. Please describe your professional status (graduate student, postdoc, etc) your area of research and your motivations for participating in the summer school.
Please also indicate your preference for a topic on which to prepare a lecture (applicable as soon as list of topics is available). The organizers are happy to answer questions on the assigned topics anytime.
