Face Masks: UIC has recently updated the policies on masks; wearing a face mask is recommended, but no longer mandatory. Accordingly, coffee and some light refreshments will be served during the workshop.
Getting to UIC: The workshop will be held in the UIC Math Department, which is located in the Science and Engineering offices building (SEO, 851 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60607). Signs with instructions on where to go will be throughout in the building, but you can also come to Wenliang Zhang's office (SEO 413) looking for more information as well.
If you are flying into O'Hare, you can take a Blue Line train into the city (towards the loop or Forest Park) which stops right next to the UIC campus (at the UIC/Halsted station) and in walking distance (half a mile) to the Crown Plaza hotel.
If you are flying into Midway, you can take an Orange Line train into the city (towards the loop), which will take you within walking distance of the Crown Plaza hotel (about a quarter of a mile from the Washington/Wells station) or allow you to transfer to the Blue Line (at the Harold Washington Library station) which stops right next to the UIC campus (at the UIC/Halsted station). Another good option is to take the Orange Line into the loop (e.g. Harold Washington Library station) and then take a short cab ride to UIC or the Crown Plaza.
