Lectures will take place in Room 4102 at the CUNY Graduate Center, located at 365 Fifth Avenue across the street from the Empire State Building. Coffee and bagels will be served in Room 4214 (the math lounge). The banquet will be held on the evening of Wednesday, August 3, at 6pm at a nearby restaurant.

A brief schedule and a schedule with titles and abstracts are available for download. In the below on-line schedule, names are linked to titles, abstracts and VIDEOS of the talks; extended abstracts for Wise's talks are available in the pdf of the full program.
