Category Theory Research Center
Category Theory OctoberFest
McGill University, Montreal
Saturday - Sunday, October 16 - 17, 2004
The meeting is now over, but for information purposes, this page
will remain in place for a while. The on-line info has been updated.
It should be noted that the participants of the meeting took the opportunity
to celebrate the occasion of M Makkai's 65th birthday, which took place during
the summer of 2004.
We invite you to join us in Montreal mid-October for a weekend
meeting in Category Theory, the "not-quite-annual" OctoberFest. As has
been the tradition with these meetings, we invite talks from all
participants. If you wish to give a talk, send your request along with
a short abstract (before the end of September please) to
Robert Seely at the address below.
The final schedule of talks will be handed out at the meeting, but the
draft schedule (etc) is available on-line:
The talks will be held in Room 1B45, in the basement of
Burnside Hall, 805 Sherbrooke West, starting on Saturday morning,
October 16th. Coffee will be available from 8:30 am. The first talk will be at
9:00. Registration will take place during the morning, before the first talk
and during the first coffee break.
There will be a registration fee of $CAN60 ($US50),
with a possible discount for students - if any students wish to take advantage
of this, please write Robert Seely,
possible, have your supervisor get in touch as well.
There will be a dinner/party on Saturday evening, also in Burnside
Hall. (Details will be announced at the meeting.) Please let us know if you
intend to join us by sending a short email (before the end of September if
possible) to Robert Seely,
also indicating whether or not you will bring a
guest to the party. (We would like to have a good estimate of how many people
will attend the party about a week before the meeting.)
A list of hotels and B&B style accomodation may be found below.
In the meantime, if you have any further questions, please contact one of us.
