G3 in Pensacola Beach, Florida, March 20-23, 2008.

Remember the old days when a group of scholars was chasing a school of groupers? You can't bring the old times back, but you can visit the same place again.

The next G3 will take place on the gulf coast from Thursday, March 20 to Sunday, March 23, 2008. Plan on coming. It is best to arrive not later than Wednesday, March 19 and to leave not earlier than Sunday noon, March 23. We plan to start in the morning on Thursday and to finish talks around noon on Sunday. The rest of Sunday (and any time after) will be devoted to informal discussions among those surviving longer.

Do not be affraid to meet people whom you see for the first time. This has been intentionally arranged for the purpose of interaction.

Organizers: Josh Barnard, Igor Belegradek, Igor Mineyev.
We are grateful for the support from National Science Foundation for this confrence.

Please call to reserve a room as soon as possible, preferably right now. The rooms should be possible to share. These are island view rooms, $109/night plus tax 14.2%, two queen beds in a room, the rate is good from March 18 (check in) to March 25 (check out). In order to receive this group rate, please make sure to mention the group name: G3. The absolute deadline for reservations is February 18, 2008. It is the spring break time, so the rooms might be quickly gone after the deadline.

The closest airport is Pensacola Regional Airport. Here are the directions to the hotel from the airport and other places.

If you'd like to give a talk.

We welcome interested graduate students, recent Ph.D., women, and minorities to apply. There are several time slots and some (limited) travel/accommodation support available. If you are interested in giving a talk at the G3 conference or to be supported for travel, please send us an email at ib math gatech edu with a short description of your research, an abstract of the proposed talk, and any other information you find relevant. Please keep in mind that this is a small conference, which unfortunately means that many of the applicants will not have an opportunity for a talk or to be supported for travel. On the other hand, there will be a time during the conference devoted to poster sessions/discussions; please use this option if you don't give a talk. There will also be a place designated for article/preprints for the duration of the conference; participants are very much encouraged to bring them (one or multiple copies).
