XXVIII Midwest Theory Get-Together
11 & 12 September 2015.

This XXVIIIth meeting in the series is being organised by Ulrich Heinz ([email protected]) and colleagues from the Ohio State University, Columbus, OH
  • As usual, the meeting will start at 1:00 PM on the Friday, with presentations in Conference Room D-120 of Building 203 at Argonne National Laboratory. Whilst this is the usual building it is not the usual room, so signs will be posted.
  • Presentations

    The meeting will follow its standard format. Namely, at 1pm, those wishing to make a presentation will be invited to write their name and title on the blackboard. That complete, the Session Leader will select a speaker, and subsequently another. This process will continue until all presentations have been made.

    The talks are limited to 10 minutes and may address recent publications, work in progress, or rough ideas.

    This year there will be two possible modes in which you may deliver your talk:

    1. Talks can be printed onto overhead transparencies. One should typically not have more than five transparencies.
    2. Laptop-based talks are also permitted, with the following restrictions:
      1. No more than eight slides;
      2. File must be a .pdf;
      3. The file must be emailed to Ulrich Heinz ([email protected]) and MUST REACH HIM NO LATER THAN 5 PM ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10. Files arriving later will not be accepted . By following this procedure we can load all laptop-based presentations onto one computer, and facilitate smooth transitions between the talks.
