Directions: Northeastern is accessible by subway via the Green Line of the MBTA. From downtown Boston, take an "E" train outbound to the Northeastern stop, the first stop above ground. The campus can also be reached from downtown via the Orange Line by taking any train going outbound to Forest Hills and getting off at Ruggles Station. Commuter rail lines connect with the Orange Line at Ruggles Station, Back Bay Station, and North Station. From the conference hotel, campus is about a 30 minutes walk, through the Fenway. The campus map is available here.

Wireless Internet Access: Wireless internet access is available via NUwave-guest, or via eduroam.

Conference Hotel: The participants will be staying at the Holiday Inn Boston-Brookline.

Visitor parking is available at the Renaissance Parking Garage, 835 Columbus Avenue; parking coupons are available upon request.

Financial support: We will try to cover travel costs, with preference given to junior participants. Graduate students applying to participate in their first AGNES should ask their advisor to send a short e-mail of support (one paragraph) to either or to one of the organizers.

About AGNES: AGNES is a series of weekend workshops in algebraic geometry. One of our goals is to introduce graduate students to a broad spectrum of current research in algebraic geometry. AGNES is held twice a year at the participating universities in the Northeast.
