Talks will begin Saturday morning and end Tuesday at noon. The topic
this spring will be Measurable and topological dynamics. The Friday mathematics
departmental colloquium at 3 P.M. will also feature a dynamics talk.
Arriving late Friday (after 6) without car, let us know.
Simple (but a bit expensive): Metro Airport Shuttle will take
any of the 3 airports directly to the campus or to your motel.
Call in advance for reservations: 703-313-5005
877-296-2876 (toll free)
For cheaper but more complex (and longer) alternatives, see below.
Reagan National or Dulles International: You want to get to the
Metro (subway system). The routes are color coded. The UM campus is
on (near) the Green Line (College Park Station). Once you arrive at the
College Park stop, take the free shuttle to campus and get off at the
Math building. The shuttle runs until midnight on weekends.
We will take you to the motel. (If you are arriving at a late hour
let us know in advance.)
National: If you are coming from National Airport, take any train into
Washington. Change at Metro Center or Gallery Place (depending
on which train you've taken.) If it's not rush hour, take the Red
Line to Fort Totten, and transfer to the Green Line. During rush
hour, (weekdays until 9:30 A.M., and between 3:30 and 7:30 PM)
take the Green Line (in the direction of Greenbelt) directly to
College Park. (It is not possible to transfer at Fort Totten
during rush hour.)
Dulles: Take the Blue Van to the West Falls Metro Station. Go
downtown Washington. Transfer to the Green Line as explained above.
For Baltimore-Washington International (BWI): Use the Metro
Airport Shuttle described above.
From Union Station, depending on whether or not it's rush hour,
take the Red Line to Fort Totten, or the Green line (see above.)
Car: The Capitol Beltway encircles the city. It is called Interstate
95 at the College Park exit. This is 2 miles north of campus. See further comment
below about the motels.
You can park free on campus during the period of
the conference (AFTER 4pm Friday). We suggest you use
Parking lot T, which is in back of the Math building.
If you come for the Friday colloquium, there are metered spaces
in lot T, as well as at a nearby parking garage.
for more information, including a campus map that shows lot T.
WEATHER: Normal temperatures here in March are a daily high of 55 degrees
and low 35 degrees. Click here for a forecast
of College Park weather for the coming week.
