The schedule is here. The book of abstracts is here. All activities will take place in Little Hall. The registration, coffee breaks and plenary talks are in the Atrium on the third floor, the special session talks are in rooms 113 and 121 on the first floor. This is a change from previous years. The rooms are all equipped with a blackboard and a computer projector.

Other logistics.

If you are a plenary or special session speaker, you were offered travel reimbursement. You should be in contact with our secretary Margaret Somers regarding your accommodation, and you will be able to pick up a reimbursement check upon conference check-in. If you plan to stay over for a couple of days after the conference, please make arrangements with Margaret and inform Zapletal as well about your stay details.

There is a conference fee payable in cash or check upon conference check-in to cover catering expenses–which our grant does not cover. We charge USD25 for the conference refreshments regardless of your reimbursement status.

We plan to publish a SEALS volume, and if you want to be a part of it, please let us know before the conference. Expository papers are welcome, at this point there is no set deadline.


The SEALS conference series is funded by the NSF grant DMS-1362273, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Office of Research of University of Florida.
