Last Minute Information for PCGM26 Registered Participants

Online registration for PCGM26 is now closed, and we have posted the final schedule of talks on the PCGM26 website:

A PDF of the program (including some useful maps) may be found [ here ].

If we have made any mistakes in accommodating your scheduling requests, let us know after you have scanned the posted schedule by emailing:

Some additional information for you is as follows:
  1. All PCGM26 lectures will be held in Ledden Auditorium, as has been previously announced.
  2. Coffee/Food will be served in 2402A AP&M (the building next to Ledden Auditorium, second floor).
  3. Registration will be held 8am-9am both days in 2402A AP&M, along with coffee/food.
  4. Coffee, bagels, fruit, and cookies will be provided (fittingly by Einstein Brothers) for morning and afternoon coffee breaks, including prior to the first lecture of the day (for those of you who skip breakfast). This is courtesy of Mark Thiemens, the dean of the Division of Physical Sciences at UCSD. NOTE: Again, coffee and food will ALWAYS be served (both mornings and afternoons) in 2402A AP&M, which is a room on the second floor of the AP&M building; this is the building right next to Ledden Auditorium.
  5. Maps to UCSD, to the Ledden Auditorium (where the talks will be held), and to various local hotels, can be found on the PCGM26 website.
  6. Links to numerous local hotels near UCSD can be found on the PCGM26 website.
  7. Parking is completely open and free all day, both days of the meeting (Friday is a university holiday, Saturday is always free)
  8. The best and closest place to park is the "Muir Upper Lot" depicted just above (north of) the Applied Physics and Mathematics Building (AP&M) on the main map appearing on the "Practical Information" webpage. It is about a 1 minute walk to the lecture hall from this parking lot.
  9. There is free and open wireless internet access on the entire campus; just select the "UCSD Visitor" wireless network, bring up a web-browser, and follow the directions on the webpage.
  10. Attendees are on their own for lunch and dinner both days. We have allowed for 2-hour lunch breaks in the schedule so that people can take a short drive (going south) down La Jolla Village Drive where numerous local restaurants may be found. See the map on the practical information page for routes to three local clusters of restaurants that are less than 10 minutes by car from AP&M.

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: Since Friday is a UC System and UCSD holiday, the normal food options on campus (mostly in the Price Center) will not be available. (Our understanding is that some of them may be available Saturday.) Again, see the map on the practical information page for routes to three local clusters of restaurants that are less than 10 minutes by car from AP&M.
We hope you all enjoy the meeting; looking forward to seeing all of you later this week in San Diego.
