This conference, co-hosted by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, has a second web site with further information. Note that there is a registration fee for this conference: $60 for researchers, $30 for students, and $20 for poster presenter, if received before June 7. Afterward, the amounts increase to $70 for researchers, $35 for students, and $25 for poster presenters. Additional guest tickets for the banquet are $30 per person. Checks are payable to MSRI, sent to the workshop information address below; please write "CAARMS10" in the memo section of the check. Events will include invited speakers, tutorials, and a graduate student poster session. The conference will spotlight the accomplishments of mathematicians from underrepresented minority backgrounds, and is open to all. Some funding is available to support graduate students who wish to make poster presentations. All interested graduate students should submit their titles and abstracts to wmassey@princeton.edu before the funding deadline of May 15, 2004, and also indicate on the electronic application form (see the registration link below) that funding is sought. Students requesting funding for the poster presentation do not need to submit the extra materials (additional e-mail to MSRI, letter from a faculty advisor) mentioned below under Funding. Again, note that there is a registration fee for this conference: $60 for researchers, $30 for students, and $20 for poster presenter, if received before June 7. Afterward, the amounts increase to $70 for researchers, $35 for students, and $25 for poster presenters. Additional guest tickets for the banquet are $30 per person.
