All of the talks will be held in the Junior Common Room in the Peterson Student Center, except a few talks perhaps in the Senior Common Room (see the Location page for more information). All morning talks will begin at 9:30. Since questions are encouraged during the review talks we expect these to take longer than a typical seminar -- we will take a 15 minute break about 45 minutes into the review. The review talks should finish up by 11:15 allowing time for informal discussion before lunch.
After lunch, we will begin at 1:00 with two technical talks of roughly 30 minutes each, and including time for discussion these should be done by 2:30. The directed discussion sessions begin at 3:00 and go on till the participants are exhausted (hopefully this will happen around 5:00 or so).
Following the practice established in SF99, there will be no talks on Wednesdays and Fridays will be half-days.
A new(ish) feature is the reorganization of Week 3 around a topical workshop. Details on this will be made available soon.
Note that because July 4 falls on a Monday, the talks will begin on July 5 and Wednesday, July 6, will not be an off-day for Week 1.
