Letters to the Speakers

Another Accommodation Note

A good further list of places to stay is at http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/resources/housing.html.

5th Letter

Dear Speakers,

I've posted a tentative schedule for the upcoming CMS meeting in Toronto
on our session's web site, at
http://katlas.math.toronto.edu/drorbn/index.php?title=CMS

Please find yourself there and make sure you are ok with it! Poor Mikhail
and Jake are scheduled for early morning talks; this perhaps can be
changed, but I think they (and the rest of us) will survive this and gain
some free time Monday afternoon which you can use either to fly home
earlier or to join for an "open discussion". I hope you'll all choose the
latter; I think there will be value to that discussion.

Reminders: Travel Arrangements!! Hotels before Nov 15! Reduced rate
registration by Nov 5! Tell me about your technology needs!

Best,

Dror.

4th Letter

Dear Speakers,

A few reminders regarding the upcoming "Knot Homologies" session in
Toronto -

1. You need to buy tickets and arrange accommodations! See my "2nd Letter"
at http://katlas.math.toronto.edu/drorbn/index.php?title=CMS and also the
"Accommodations Note" there.

2. The deadline for reduced-rate registration is November 5. Please
register and keep the receipt, though remember that our budget is tiny so
it won't cover much more than the registration...

3. If you'll need any special equipment for your talk, my deadline to
request it is Friday November 3rd, so please tell me about it soon. In our
lecture room we will have an overhead projector, a screen and a
white board. Computer projectors must be booked now.

4. MOST IMPORTANT: If you haven't submitted your title and abstract yet,
please do so ASAP, and also send a copy directly to me. I need to prepare
the schedule for our session by next Friday (Nov 3), and my plan is to do
it next Wednesday. It will be better if I'll know what you are planning to
talk about! This applies to Caprau, Collin, Lee, Morrison, Naot,
Ortiz-Navarro, Rasmussen, Rozansky and Todd.

Your Obedient Servant,

Dror.

Accommodations Note

If you're still looking for accommodations, I would definitely take a look at http://www.baldwininn.com/. A new place so no feedback yet, but the location is fantastic.

3rd Letter

Shalom Speakers and Potential Speakers,

A quick reminder - the powers above me request that you submit your
abstract by October 15 (i.e., in about two days) at
http://www.cms.math.ca/Events/winter06/announce.e#abs_sub. The punishment
for not doing so will be that your abstract may not appear in the official
program. This of course will not prevent it from appearing on our
"internal" wiki site.

Also, visit our internal site at
http://katlas.math.toronto.edu/drorbn/index.php?title=CMS
for the most up-to-date list of speakers.

Lehitraot,

Dror.

2nd Letter

Dear Speakers and Potential Speakers,

A few more words about the CMS Winter 2006 Session on Knot Homologies in
Toronto on December 9-11 -

As I wrote on the initial invitation, we only have a tiny budget to run
this session - about $3,000 to divide between around 10 speakers. This
means very little for each one of you, I'm afraid. If this scares you out,
say so now and don't hold a grudge against me later!

On the other hand, I think we have an excellent group of speakers (see
http://katlas.math.toronto.edu/drorbn/index.php?title=CMS), so the
meeting itself should be FUN.

Now for the technicalities -

1. The powers above me request that you submit your abstract by October 15
(i.e., in about two weeks) at
http://www.cms.math.ca/Events/winter06/announce.e#abs_sub. The punishment
for not doing so will be that your abstract may not appear in the official
program. This of course will not prevent it from appearing on our
"internal" wiki site.

2. You are requested to register at
http://www.cms.math.ca/Events/winter06/announce.e#registration by November
5. Please do so and pay the registration fees as on the web, and note that
I after I refund those I'll have a lot less money to play with.

3. Find yourself a hotel room as on
http://www.cms.math.ca/Events/winter06/announce.e#accommodation and book
it by November 15. If you need my help with choices or with further
choices, you know how to reach me. There are also much cheaper and
lower-grade places available. Scott Morrison stayed in one of those three
times and seemed happy and undamaged. His place is at
http://www.affordacom.com/home.htm; it is within the lovely Kensington
Market neighborhood, within 5 minutes walk from my house and from the math
department and the Fields Institute, and within 20 minutes walk from the
conference site.

4. Book your flights and let me know their dates/times. No deadline.

Best,

Dror.

Shalom ***,

I'd like to invite you to give a one hour talk in the topology/knot theory
session of the Winter Meeting of the Canadian Mathematical Society, to be
held in Toronto on December 9-11, 2006.

Note that despite the wide title of our session, I plan to make it quite
focused, with most talks on or around knot homologies and with a relatively
small (10-12) number of speakers. So you should think of the meeting more
as a "workshop" than as a "session in an AMS conference". Though to cut
costs, I'm presently inviting only people from the northeast, which is
generalized to also include Chicago, North Carolina and eastern Canada.

We will have around $3,000 overall to support the speakers. This is not
enough to pay for all expenses, but you can assume that at least some of
your expenses will be covered.

Toronto's the second nicest city in the world and I'm sure you'll enjoy the
meeting!

Lehitraot,

Dror.

Shalom Friends,

This is not an invitation nor an announcement, just a call for your
opinion. I was asked to organize a session in the Canadian Mathematical
Society (CMS) meeting in Toronto, Dec 9-11 2006. I didn't accept or
decline yet, but I will do so in 2-3 days and I'd like to get your
opinions before deciding.

My idea is to "hijack" the session and to organize it as a mini-workshop
similar in style and content to the workshop Olivier Collin organized a
few months ago in Montreal (thus the people receiving this message are the
east-coast speakers from Montreal, and forgive me if I forgot anyone).

More details: We'll have time for 8-9 one hour talks; a part of that
(maybe 2 hours) will have to go to other parts of topology. We'll be able
to split some of those to two half-hour talks (in fact, this seems to be
the standard in CMS meetings, but I'd like to have as many longer talks as
possible). I/we will have $2,500 from the CMS plus a small amount from my
grant. So we will have to restrict to people from the east coast and even
they may not get full support.

So what do you think? Should I bother? Would you come? At this time
neither this letter nor your response to it will be binding in any way.

Lehitraot,

Dror.
