    PNGS meetings are supported by funds from the National Science
    Foundation and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical
    Sciences. Limited travel support is available for participants in
    this meeting. First priority goes to graduate students and faculty
    from the participating universities (Oregon State, U. of Oregon,
    Portland State, Stanford, UBC, U. of Utah, U. of Washington). If
    you are affiliated with one of these universities and are interested
    in travel support, please contact one of the PNGS organizers at your
    university NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 6:

    OSU Christine Escher ()
    Hal Parks ()
    Juha Pohjanpelto ()
    U of O Boris Botvinnik ()

    Participants from other universities may be supported if funds are
    available. Travel support is limited to graduate students or faculty
    members who do not have NSF grants that provide travel funds. We
    are particularly interested in providing support to young researchers,
    female mathematicians, and members of underrepresented groups.

    If you are not affiliated with a participating university and
    would like to be considered for travel support, contact Jim
    Isenberg <> as soon as possible.
