We have created an on-line registration form that we request you fill out and send it to us (see the above link for Registration. Just click on the"send" button after you are finished filling it out).

For participants, especially speakers: There is a limited block of rooms reserved for the conference at the Spring Hill Suites, 1421 Olentangy River Road, Columbus, Ohio, 43212. See Spring Hill Suites (See Map from SpringHill Suites to OSU). For reservations mention, The Math Conference on K-theory, Algebriac Cycles & Mathematical Physics : price $132 per room. (If you are overseas, we suggest faxing your reservation to the hotel.) This is a special rate available only if you are part of the conference. The hotel is within walking distance from OSU campus and you can easily walk to the Conference rooms. Included in the room rate are a full hot breakfast and free shuttle to campus. Please note that if you are an invited speaker, we have alreday reserved a room for you for 5 nights: therefore, in this case you need to contact the hotel only if you are planning to stay for a shorter duration.

For other participants: We may be able to provide support towards accommodation for a very limited number of graduate students and post docs. There are a number of hotels and motels close to the OSU campus: for example, the HolidayInn Express and Suites OSU, 3045 Olentangy River Road, OH, 43202. Please use the link Holiday Inn Express or call 614-447-1212 or fax to 614-447-1211 and mention you are part of the Math Conference on K-theory and Algebraic Cycles in August to receive the special rate. These are mostly rooms with two beds so that those who want to share a room can get half the above rate. If you are interested in sharing a room, please mention the name of the other person with whom you may wish to share the room with. Included in the room rate are a full hot breakfast and free shuttle to campus.

You may also take a look at the following more or less complete list of hotels and motels in the general campus area. We have to warn you though, that the rates listed there may or may not be the same as what you may be able to obtain.
