Graduate student support.

We will award several grants to graduate students traveling to our conference, sufficient to cover local expenses and defray a good part of the airfare. To apply for the travel grant, please send a brief application letter and a support letter from your advisor to zapletal@math.ufl.edu. Preference will be given to students willing to present a talk in the set theory special session.



The following hotels have been used by the mathematics department without major mishaps in the past:

The Lakeshore Motel, which some of you may have used in the past, fell victim to a bulldozer a couple of years ago.


You can fly to the Gainesville airport and continue to the campus by public bus (limited schedule line 25A or B), taxi, or Uber. You can also fly to other airports (Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa), rent a car and endure the 1.5-2 hour ride. Renting a car with University of Florida is cheap (USD35 a day, the pickup and destination sites do not have to match), but our secretary has to arrange it for you.


Conference fee.

USD 25 payable by check or cash at the check in. The fee is spent on the refreshments–they cannot be purchased from the grant funds under the terms of the grant.

Local information.

A map with the hotels, conference site, restaurants and local attractions is here. On the weekends, parking in front of Little Hall is free and should be plentiful. Use the 13th St. /SW 2nd Ave entrance to campus.


There will be a party at Zapletal’s house at 8pm on Saturday evening. The address is 20600 NW 10th Street, McIntosh FL 32664. The address may be missing in some databases. The coordinates are latitude 29.448916532 and longitude -82.223595320.  The map.The directions: head on US441 south (SW13th Street) for about 15 miles, past the town of Micanopy to the town of Mc Intosh. At the intersection with CR 320 (blinking yellow light above the road ) turn right and the house is the second house on the right. Cell 352-256-5796.
