The conference will take place at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, and will be hosted by the Stony Brook Department of Mathematics.
Hotel arrangements for the speakers will be made by the conference staff.
The nearest airport is Long Island MacArthur, located in Islip, NY. As Islip is primarily served by Southwest Airlines and Frontier Airlines, however, some participants may instead choose to use one of New York City's major airports for reason of price or flight schedule. Among these airports, New York JFK has the advantage that it offers a connection to the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) via the AirTrain from all terminals to Jamaica station; the Stony Brook campus can then be reached from Jamaica by taking a train bound for Port Jefferson. Stony Brook is the next-to-last stop on the Port Jefferson branch. Flying through New York Laguardia is also possible, but, because this airport is currently undergoing extensive renovations, your experience there could be deeply unpleasant; Laguardia is not currently accessible by train, and travel to and from Laguardia by rented car or limo typically involves fighting enormous traffic jams caused by airport construction. Finally, you could fly through Newark Liberty International Airport; however, because this airport is located on the far side of New York City, reaching Stony Brook from Newark typically demands a lengthy train trip, consisting of segments on the Newark AirTrain, New Jersey Transit, and the Long Island Railroad. If you choose to use Newark Airport, details for taking the train from the Airport to Penn Station can be found here. Once at Penn Station you can take the LIRR to the Stony Brook station.
Information regarding visiting the Stony Brook campus and the surrounding area can be found here. If you are taking the LIRR to the Stony Brook station, walking directions to the Simons Center (adjacent to the Mathematics Tower) are available here.
There will be a wine-and-cheese reception on April 3, following Joel Spruck's colloquium.
The conference banquet will be held at the Simons Center on the evening of April 4.
