The National Science Foundation is supporting participation by graduate students and young researchers based in the US; some of the money may be available for nonUS based graduate students and young researchers. (The total amount of support, however, is extremely limited, so we encourage all applicants to look for additional sources of support.)

If you need such support, please indicate it on the registration form. Since the funding is being administered through the University of Nebraska, please also send an email note to Brian Harbourne (, indicating your intention to apply for support.

Poster Session:

A poster session has been added. If you are interested in giving a contributed talk or presenting a poster, please indicate it on the registration form. The organizing committee will make the final decision on the selection of talks and posters, but we would like especially to encourage young investigators to participate.
