Program is here (there is a small change
made on 10/9/06).
Rooms can be reserved directly at the University Place hotel at the
special rate of $120 (or $135 for a double room) by calling
(800)-627-2700 and mentioning the Midwest Dynamics meeting in the Math
Department. The hotel was recently renovated. Its website
and the address is 850 West Michigan Street.
Update: If you do not get the special rate, try www.indy.org, as described below,
or the hotel site.
A cheaper option is Days Inn Downtown, 401 East Washington Street (1.6
miles away). Rooms can be reserved directly until September 13 by
calling (317)-637-6464 and asking for the special Midwest Dynamics
rate of $75 (single or double room), including parking and breakfast.
The website is www.daysinn.com
but you should first check the convention and visitors association
site www.indy.org. Use the "Latest
Indy Hot Hotel Deals" form and find in
the results Days Inn Downtown - you may get a better rate this way.
Here is a map of Indy
downtown. The coordinates of the Math Department are B4 (just to the
right of the University Library), University Place is at B3 and Days
Inn Downtown is at F5.
Update: For those that
do not like walking too much, a convenient way of getting to the
conference site from the Days Inn hotel is
the Red Line.
Update on parking:
If you come with a car, you can get $4/day parking passes at the
meeting registration table in the IT building. You can pull up in the
driveway at the Michigan Street entrance, just after the intersection
with West Street. Note that University Place Hotel parking is $12/day
but Days Inn parking is free.
Registration: You do not need to register to participate in the
conference. However, if you want to receive financial support, we
recommend you request it by September 15. Since our funds are limited,
at this moment we cannot guarantee full support to all applicants.
Nevertheless, we are optimistic.
Update: We are less
optimistic now about full support.
Location: The IUPUI campus is located very close to downtown
Indianapolis. You can see it on the map above, and the links to more
detailed campus maps are here.
Airports: Indianapolis is served by Indianapolis International
Airport (3-letter code IND). Take a shuttle, limousine or taxi to
the hotel (the distance is about 5 miles).
