The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers from the computer science, symbolic algebra and group theory communities in order to explore the interplay between three primary areas: the complexity of computing with groups, implementation issues for group computations on both sequential and parallel machines, and the application of groups to important problems in computer science. The organizing committee consists of Larry Finkelstein, Daniel Gorenstein, William Kantor and Charles Sims.
The technical sessions will begin on Monday October 7 and end at lunch time on Thursday October 10. All sessions will held at the CORE building on the Busch Campus of Rutgers, across the river from New Brunswick. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Holiday Inn in South Plainfield (4701 Stelton Road, 908-753-5500). The rate for the workshop participants is $63 per day, single or double occupancy, for a room with two double beds. You should make your reservation directly with Holiday Inn, mentioning the DIMACS workshop. Also, a block of rooms has been reserved at the Franklin Inn, (1012 Stelton Road, Piscataway, 908-981-9200) at the rate of $45 per night. If it is particularly inconvenient to make your own hotel reservation, please contact Pat Toci (email@example.com) at the DIMACS office as soon as possible, and she will make the reservations for you. Both hotels will provide a shuttle bus to the DIMACS Center each morning and back each evening. Maps and local information will be sent to participants in a later mailing.
