There is no registration fee for the workshop. The Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) will provide lunch and dinner banquet on Saturday for all invited participants as well as residence rooms for all invited students and postdocs. Past that, our funding priorities, in order, are: residence or hotel rooms for out-of-town speakers; residence or hotel rooms for all remaining invited out-of-town participants; travel expenses for invited out-of-town students and postdocs; travel expenses for invited out-of-town speakers; and travel expenses for all remaining invited out-of-town participants. How far down this list we get will be determined by the number of participants we get.
