Directions: Take the Wilshire exit from I405,
heading East. Go East on Wilshire a few blocks to
Westwood. Go North on Westwood into the campus.
There is a parking/information kiosk on the median
of Westwood Blvd. Stop there to get a parking permit.
Ask to park in lot 9. If you have a UC parking permit,
parking should be free. Otherwise, it costs $7.
To reach the IPAM building, go to the elevator
at the East end of lot 9, and go up to the top level.
Walk North through the Court of Sciences, passing
between the Mathematical Sciences Building and
Franz Hall. You will see the IPAM building directly
in front of you.
Reception: Following the talks, there will be
a reception (beverages and snacks) at the home of Tom and Chris Liggett. All
participants are invited. The Liggett home is not
far from the intersection of I10 and I405, so it is
easy to get there from UCLA, and easy to get back
on the freeway afterwards. Directions will be provided
at the meeting. We are not making any formal dinner
plans. Participants who wish to get together for
dinner can make arrangements at the reception.
Warning: The symposium will be held in the IPAM
building, not in the Mathematical Sciences building
as originally announced.
