Equipment for speakers
The equipment available for speakers at this meeting is a computer, a computer projector, and either blackboards or whiteboards. There are no traditional overhead projectors that use acetate sheets.
Speakers using computer projection can use their own laptops, but, for smoother transitions between talks, our hosts recommend using the provided computer or connecting one laptop to the projector (yours or one volunteered from within your speaker set) and have speakers bring their talks on thumb drives. The projector comes with a standard VGA cable; anyone using a mac must bring the appropriate adaptor.
View AMS Meeting March 3-4 2012 in a larger map
This is projected to be the largest meeting of the Western Section of the AMS ever, with over 500 participants.
There will be 4 plenary lecturers and 25 special sessions. The special sessions are distributed as follows:
- 10 in the Business School,
- 7 in Kuykendall,
- 4 in Webster,
- 2 in POST,
- 1 in Keller Hall,
- 1 in Miller Hall.
The specific sessions can be located on the map by clicking on a colored marker. The walk between Business (where many Analysis sessions are held) and Kuykendall (where many Algebra sessions are held) is about 0.3 miles, and is indicated on the map.
The Campus facilities are closed during weekends, however a lunch wagon serving Indian dishes agreed to open from 11 am to 2 pm. The "India Cafe" outlet is operating at Varsity Circle that is centrally located on the Manoa Campus. This will be by far the most convenient place to have lunch during the meeting and they are prepared to offer up to 200 meals.
Menu for the two days:
South Indian Chicken Curry - Juicy chicken stir-fried with onions,
garlic, ginger, curry leaves, anise star, cardamom, cinnamon sticks
and cloves then slow cooked in a medium spiced red curry sauce.
Chicken Tikka Masala - Boneless chicken marinated in yogurt, lemon juice and herbs then slow cooked in a sweet tomato and cream curry sauce.
Spicy Seafood Curry
Vegetarian Plate - Curried Mix Vegetables and Chana masala (chick peas) served with rice.
Roti Paratha Bread, Drinks available
There are two other possibilities involving some walking.
There are several restaurants at the intersection of University Avenue, Beretania and King Street. It will take 15 to 20 minutes to walk there.
A little further away, but with a larger offering is the Manoa Market Place. There is a shortcut through the mountain side of the Campus that will take you to the Manoa Market Place in 20 to 25 minutes. There are Korean, Japanese, Italian restaurants and fast food outlets of various persuasions.
While buses run to these places from the UH, it would be hopeless during the weekend when buses are on special reduced schedules.
A much longer trip is required to the Ala Moana Shopping Center that contains a large food court and numerous other restaurants. There is a bus connection (#6) but this would be very time consuming. Taking a cab might be reasonable for a group that wishes to lunch together.
