Randomness and Lie-theoretic Structures

March 4 — 5, 2024

Department of Mathematics, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA

Local details

NEW! Recommended hotels (both should have hotel blocks - mention UVA Department of Mathematics and Robin Mongold who reserved the blocks)
  1. English Inn: shuttle service, not quite walking distance (zone III one the map). About $120/night
  2. Courtyard Charlottesville - University Medical Center: walking distance (zone II one the map), about $180/night
English Inn should have shuttle to UVA. It's a 45-minute walk along busy roads (unpleasant), or about an hour via Rugby Road (pleasant). It is also serviced by bus route 7 (Charlottesville's buses are free). There are free [university buses](https://parking.virginia.edu/university-transit-service-0), see Gold Line. However, March 4-5 is spring break, so I am not sure if they will run. Finally, uber/lyft is another option.

Charlottesville is a midsize college town located in Central Virginia, 2.5 hours (by car) south of Washington, DC. The local airport code is CHO, and this airport is the most comfortable way to getting to the town (it is about 20 minutes/USD25 on Uber from the town). Another close airport (1 hour drive) is Richmond (RIC). The closest major international airports are Washington Dulles (IAD) and Washington Reagan (DCA). Flying to CHO would probably require a connection and may be less convenient, depending on where you are flying from.

Random things to consider from far airports:
