Nebraska-Iowa Iowa-Nebraska Functional Analysis Seminar

General Format

This is a one-day mathematics conference held once or twice a year, usually in April in Omaha, Nebraska and in October in Des Moines, Iowa. The format consists of four hour-long talks, with a one-and-a-half or two hour lunch. between the 2nd and 3rd talk. The first talk typically starts at 11:00 am and the last talk finishes about 5:00 pm.

In Des Moines, we usually meet at The University of Iowa John and Mary Pappajohn Education Center, located at 1200 Grand Ave., Des Moines, IA 50309. Here is a map. (For many years, we met on the campus of Drake University, and we are grateful for their support.)

In Omaha, we usually meet on the campus of Creighton University.

The conference first met in March of 1994; the April 2014 meeting represented the twentieth year and the twenty-seventh meeting. (There have not been two meetings every year.)

It is jointly organized by the Mathematics Departments of Creighton University, Iowa State University, The University of Iowa, and The University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Faculty and students from a number of other nearby universities also attend. All are welcome. There is no registration fee. If you have any questions, please contact one of the organizers.
