Continuting the success of the MASON series of conferences, James Madison University will be hosting the third in the MASON series of conferences in February 2019.
The Mid-Atlantic Seminar On Numbers is a series of conferences in number theory held at colleges and universities in the Mid Atlantic region.
We are able to provide partial travel support for junior participants to attend the conference and are grateful to the National Science Foundation and the Number Theory Foundation for their support.
We are also grateful to the JMU Department of Mathematics and Statistics for their support of MASON III.
Location: James Madison University, Harrisonburg VA
Local Organizers: Cassie Williams and John Webb.
There is no registration fee to attend Mason III, but please register for the conference here.
Requesting support: If you are considering requesting financial support for your travel to and from MASON III, you will need to register with JMU’s financial system. Directions to do so were emailed to all conference participants on Monday 2/18; please contact Cassie Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions. Documentation for reimbursements will be collected at the conference.
Abbey Bourdon (Wake Forest), Michelle Manes (U Hawaii), and Jesse Thorner (Stanford).
Contributed talks are twenty minutes in length. If you wish to contribute a talk you can do so on the registration form.
James Madison University is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley in Harrisonburg, VA. Situated along Interstate 81, the campus is approximately a two hour drive west from Washington, DC and a four hour drive north from Charlotte, NC.
There are several hotels within a few miles of campus. We have reserved a block of hotel rooms at Hotel Madison, which is located on JMU’s campus.
This hotel is less than a five minute walk to the conference itself, and a short walk to the downtown area.
The conference rate is $94 per night when you book by February 1, so we encourage you to make your reservations early!
You can book directly through this link, visit their website (www.hotelmadison.com) and enter the Group Code MASON19, or call the hotel at 540-564-0200 and say you are with the group MASON.
The nearest airports are Shenandoah Valley Regional (SHD), 15 miles south of JMU, and Charlottesville-Albemarle (CHO), about an hour east of JMU. The nearest major airport is Dulles International (IAD), a two hour drive from JMU. From Charlottesville or Dulles, the most cost effective way to get to Harrisonburg would be to rent a car.
Parking: You can park for free in any Faculty/Staff spot (Levels 3-5) in the Mason Street Parking Deck (715 South Mason Street) starting at 4:30pm on Friday until 7:30am on Monday. Make sure you enter the deck from South Mason Street to access these levels! Do not park in spaces marked “Pay-by-space” or “Admissions Visitors”.
(This also applies to any participants staying at Hotel Madison! The hotel has reserved spots on lower levels of the deck, but we believe there is some charge for using them. There is a covered walkway from parking to the hotel at the rear of Level 2.)
Conference location: All conference events will be held in Burruss Hall rooms 31 and 32 (in the lowest level of the building). It’s a very short walk from both the Hotel Madison (head up Grace Street) or the Mason Street Parking Deck. (See the map.)
