Directions and Parking
- Here is a link to a UCI campus map. The talks will be held in Balboa Island A, which is in the Student Center, located at D5 on the campus map near the intersection of Pereira Drive and West Peltason Drive.
- The best place for parking is the Student Center Parking Structure, which is across from the Student Center and is labelled SCPS on the campus map. A permit may be purchased at the kiosk upon entering the structure. UC participants may use their UC parking permits. There will be signs posted directing participants form the parking ramp to the room.
- Because there is another large event scheduled at UCI on the day of the symposium, participants are encouraged to allow 10-15 minutes more time than usual for parking.
- The conference dinner will be held at 6:00 PM at O Fine Japanese Cuisine in Irvine.
- If you wish to attend the dinner, please email Todd Kemp at email@example.com by 5:00 PM on Thursday, December 3.
- This year's symposium is being organized by the San Diego probability group, consisting of Bruce Driver, Pat Fitzsimmons, Todd Kemp, Amber Puha, Jason Schweinsberg, and Ruth Williams.
- If you have any questions about the symposium, please direct them, by email, to Jason Schweinsberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Information and reminders about the symposium will be sent by email to members of the Southern California Probability Group email list. If you wish to add or remove your name from this list, please click here.
