Slides and related materials for short talks

Information for short talk speakers

The lecture hall we are using has an LCD projector as well as large chalkboards. If you plan to use the projector, we will have one available and ready to use.

You will have 20 minutes for your talk, followed by a short period for questions. Rick Durrett has written some tips on giving a 20 minute talk.

We will also be posting slides, references, etc for the short talks. Ben Steinhurst will be collecting the files; send to
