General Information

The conference will be held on the campus of the Ohio State University in the Math Annex (EA) next to the Mathematics Tower (MW), in Journalism (JR), and in Smith Laboratory (SM). See maps below:


There are a block of rooms reserved for the conference at

Ramada Hotel, 3110 Olentangy River Road, 614-267-7461; for reservations mention Complex Analysis and Geometry Conf.; price about $59 per room.

The Ramada has a good shuttle service to campus (also the walk is < 1 mile) and also to and from the airport. Please make your reservations as early as possible so that the supply and demand of rooms at the Ramada can be kept in balance.

You may also take a look at the following more or less complete list of hotels and motels in the general campus area.

We will be able to provide support towards accomodation and meals for a limited number of graduate students and post docs.


You can park in the OSU stadium lot (at Cannon Dr. and Woody Hayes Dr.) for free. Parking closer may result in a ticket.

From the stadium walk east past the bookstore and cross Neil Ave to 18th Ave, MW and EA will be on your right.
