IMA Visitor Information


Program Application: If you plan to attend a tutorial/workshop, we ask that you please register online using the Application Forms link. Online registration will be closed a few days prior to the workshop but you may still register in person at the workshop (usually in 3-176 Kenneth H. Keller Hall). Your registration is important for a variety of reasons, including the directory of participants which will be distributed when the workshop is over.

Name tags: Please wear your name tag during workshops. If you have misplaced your nametag, please ask the staff to make you a new one.

Lecture Notes/Material from Talks: If you are a speaker, please email your presentation materials to or bring printed material to 409 Lind Hall for scanning. Whenever possible we post talk materials to the IMA web page. We can duplicate directly from transparencies, however, we prefer an electronic version or a paper copy. Material from IMA Talks can be found at

Poster Session/Dimension: We plan to have a poster session in every workshop. Given our diverse interdisciplinary audience, the poster session provides a valuable opportunity for both in-depth technical discussion and networking with researchers new to your field. All participants including speakers are encouraged to present a poster. If you would like to present a poster, please complete the information below and send it to .
