Local Information

Conference facilities:

We'll have both blackboards and computer projection equipment available for talks.

Getting around in Oxford:

If you’re on campus or near the square, you can get around easily on foot. Getting out to West Jackson Avenue or other areas of town is most easily done by car. There is limited bus service on Saturday only, described at the Oxford-University Transit website.
There are now nearly a dozen different taxi services in town. You’ll find their phone numbers at http://visitoxfordms.com/about-oxford/directions-transportation/
We can help arrange carpools for Sunday if necessary. (If you so need, let us know Saturday by around lunchtime.)

Lodging:

Hotels in Oxford fill up quickly on autumn weekends, even without a home football game. We recommend booking early.

We are holding a block of rooms at the Inn at Ole Miss, which is on campus. The rates here are $119 and $139 per night for “basic” and “deluxe” rooms respectively. Use the group name “Mississippi Discrete Math Workshop” when you reserve by phone. To reserve online use group code 3569. The block will be released on October 3, so reserve before then.
While these rates may be available without the group code, we have made a financial commitment in order to hold this block. Please do use the code.

You’ll find a comprehensive list of lodging options, including B&Bs, at http://visitoxfordms.com/where-to-stay/ .

There are two relatively new hotels within pleasant walking distance to campus.

The Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express on West Jackson Avenue share a parking lot. Campus access is easy by car. The 1.5 miles to Hume Hall is walkable, though not necessarily pleasant.

Also on W. Jackson Ave, across the street from the two listed above:

On the east side of town, about a 10 minute drive to campus, is another Hampton Inn.

Eating and food in Oxford:

We plan to provide lunch on Saturday, and a light dinner at the reception on Saturday.

Apart from that, there are lots of food options around the Square, an easy walk from the University. See this site for more information.
