All talks will be in Savery Hall, Room 264. Convenient parking is available in the underground Central Plaza Garage (enter from 15th Ave NE across from NE 41st St.). Because of other events on campus, the parking lot will be crowded, so try to walk over from your hotel if possible. But there should be a few spaces reserved -- tell the person at the gate you're with "PNGS." Parking costs $10 (paid at the entry gate) on Saturday until noon, and is free all day Sunday.

Note that the weekend of October 15-18 is UW Homecoming Weekend, so hotel rooms might be scarce and traffic might be even more difficult than usual. We have reserved a few hotel rooms near campus, which can be claimed on a first-come, first-served basis by sending an email request to Jack Lee (

Funding for this meeting is provided by the NSF, PIMS, and the Milliman Fund.
