||In addition to black boards and white boards, there are three options for presentation
of talks: overhead projector, computer projector from your
laptop, or video opaque projector ("elmo"). The overhead
projector uses standard transparencies. The elmo can project printed
pages, or you can write on a sheet of paper just as you would write
on an overhead transparency.
If you plan to project from your laptop, please bring an adaptor
to hook it up to a VGA cable. If you prefer you can have the pdf's on a thumb drive. It makes sense to have a low-tech backup (printout
or transparencies) just in case the technology fails.
||You can get Wi-Fi access pretty much everywhere on
the UGA campus with a visitor password. We'll put the login and password
in your registration packet.
bus system is a convenient and free way to get around campus.
||There is a parking
deck just a few blocks from the math department where the talks will be held. Normally this
costs about $8-10/day. During evenings and weekends
you can park anywhere on campus (except the parking deck) at no
cost. Check with our secretaries, and we'll see if we can dig up some half price passes.
||We are planning a canoe trip down the Broad River on Friday
The we will rent canoes for $20/person from Broad
River Outpost which is located
about 20 miles north of Athens After the canoe trip we will figure
out some sort of activity involving Zeb's barbeque.
||Another way to see the countryside, without getting wet, is to
drive about 30 minutes south to Madison (the
city that Sherman refused to burn). If you walk along smaller back
streets, you'll find lots of beautiful homes.
||We get a huge amount of help running this conference from our STAFF,
Julie McEver (aka firstname.lastname@example.org), Connie Poore, Gail Suggs,
Laura Ackerley, and Christy McDonald. They are super helpful, and if you don't see some of them at the conference, they are covering for those you do see.
