This is the schedule for the West Coast Operator Algebra Seminar, University of Oregon, Saturday 20 Oct.--Sunday 21 Oct. 2012. A pdf file of the abstracts is here.

Corrected version. (Three talks have been cyclically permuted, because one of the early speakers had his flight cancelled.)

All talks will be in 110 Fenton Hall. For information on location and what is in this room, see below.

The talks are in 110 Fenton. To find Fenton Hall on the campus map: The building approximately half way from the center to the top left corner of the map is the Miller Theater Complex, also labelled Villard in smaller type. Deady Hall is the next building to the south, and Fenton Hall is the next building to the south of that. Fenton Hall is the next building to the east of the Lillis Business Complex.

Walking instructions from the Best Western New Oregon Motel (and from other motels) can be found starting about half way down the motel information page.

Information about the room is here. (It is mostly useful for speakers.) The link to a campus map goes to the same page as above--the building isn't specially marked.
