American Mathematical Society Fall Southeastern Sectional Meeting

October 17-18, 2015

The Department of Mathematical Sciences welcomes all participants to this sectional meeting of the American Mathematical Society. This page is designed to provide local information for our visitors.

For complete conference information, including registration, accommodation, and conference program, please visit the AMS website. See also the summary of the special sessions.

Registration is in the attrium outside of the Psychology Auditorium, between the Psychology building and Dunn Hall.

Accommodation. There are two on-campus hotels, the University Holiday Inn and Fogelman Executive Conference Center & Hotel. Other hotels close to campus include:

  • Doubletree Suites (3 miles from campus), 5069 Sanderlin Avenue, 901.767.6666
  • Hampton Inn (3.3 miles from campus), 5320 Poplar Avenue, 901.683.8500

The last three listed are in the Saint Francis Hospital area, near Park and Ridgeway, where several fine dining establishments are also located. We will endeavor to have shuttle service provided between the Doubletree Suites and Hampton Inn hotels and the university campus.

Note: the AMS Meeting is held on the same weekend as the biggest local football game of the year, with the Memphis Tigers hosting the University of Mississippi. As a result, hotel rooms in the U of M area may be filling up quickly. We recommend making reservations as early as possible.

For more general information, including campus maps, directions to the university, on and off-campus dining options, and local attractions, please see the Visitor Information page.

Parking is free throughout Saturday and Sunday in the main Central Avenue Parking lot, which is on the north side of the campus, adjacent to the Holiday Inn. However, only guests of the Holiday Inn should use the Holiday Inn parking lot.

There will be a reception at the Fogelman Center, 6:15-8:15 pm, October 17. Everyone is invited.

Wireless access is available via the uom-guest network. Participants can also use the computers in Dunn Hall 207, where limited printing services are also available.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences wishes to acknowledge the contributions of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Fogelman Business School, both of which have been of great assistance in assuring the success of this conference.
