Here is a sequence (pun intended!) of pictures taken at the conference (many thanks to Russell Hendel who took these pictures).
           Others are posted on webshots (thanks to Karyn McLellan for posting them). If you do have others, please send them to Pante's gmail account.

The (tentative) schedule of talks and abstracts are posted. A list of participants along with their emails can be found here.

We have some modest funds for students and untenured young faculty, which
can be used to
cover the registration fee and/or accommodation in a basic dorm style setting.
Please apply in advance! We thank UNAM and the Number Theory Foundation for support.

We have a new secure web link for registration.


Invited Speaker:  Art Benjamin, of Harvey Mudd College (Claremont, CA) a Beckenbach Book Prize winner for Proofs that Really Count: The Art of Combinatorial Proof from the Mathematical Association of America, 2006. He was also the MAA Polya Lecturer , 2006-2008. He is a lively and great speaker.
