Dear guest speaker,
We are delighted to have you visit the Department of Mathematics at Oregon State University and give a talk in our colloquium series. We hope you enjoy your time in Corvallis, and we hope to make your stay enjoyable and intellectually stimulating. Below, you will find information to help prepare your talk, help for arranging your travel, funding information as well as the reimbursement process to receive that funding, which includes saving certain receipts. Please do not hesitate to email the Colloquium Chair, Ren Guo, for further information. We look forward to seeing you in Corvallis.
As soon as you are able, and preferably at least two weeks before your talk please email Ren Guo your title and abstract. Your talk will be advertised here. Please let Ren know if anything seems amiss.
Our colloquia are held from 4pm to 4:50 p.m. on Mondays. The building and room number for your talk will be on the event listing. The colloquium room is equipped with a large chalkboard, a document cam, and a computer with projector. If using the projector, you may bring your talk on a memory stick, or bring your own laptop to connect. We recommend also emailing the talk to yourself as a precaution against rare technology malfunctions.
We have a colloquium tea before the talk with coffee, tea, cookies, and popcorn at 3:30 p.m. in the faculty lounge located on the 3rd floor of Kidder Hall in room 302. This provides an excellent opportunity to meet faculty and graduate students in the department before the talk.
The OSU math department includes faculty, instructors, and graduate students of diverse mathematical backgrounds. We kindly request that your talk be
- About 45-50 minutes in length, to leave time for questions (5-10 minutes)
- Aimed at a general audience
- Accessible to graduate students
Please feel free to contact Ren Guo with any questions or concerns.
The mathematics department at Oregon State is located in Kidder Hall, on the corner of Campus Way and Waldo Ave. The main office is located in Kidder 368 on the third floor.
