2013 Workshop on Random Matrices and Applications

June 17 - 19, 2013, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA


University of Michigan campus

We are delighted to host the 2013 Workshop on Random Matrices and Applications at the University of Michigan.

We thank the Michigan Mathematics Journal, the Department of Mathematics, the College of Engineering and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science for their generous support.

We look forward to seeing you in Michigan!

All talks will be held in 335 West Hall on Central Campus. For walking directions from the Campus Inn to West Hall, click here. Note that there is ongoing construction on South University avenue that prevents pedestrian access - hence the Pythagorean walking route suggested here.


The conference starts on the morning of Monday, June 17th and ends at noon on Wednesday, June 19th. The talks are to be 37-40 minutes long with 2-5 minutes for questions and discussion. The schedule of talks and abstracts is available here.

Airport transfer information

You may take the Air Ride which is a bus from the airport to Ann Arbor (Cost: $12 each way). The list of stops is here.

Speakers will be staying at the Campus Inn so they might find it useful to get off at the Blake Transit Center; walking directions to Campus Inn (0.5 mile) can be accessed here. Other transportation options include taxi ($60 each way) for which you will find directions to the taxi pick-up spot at the airport under "Ground Transportation". Shuttle and other information is available here. Shuttle companies names will contain the word shuttle in it - you must call the shuttle in advance to make a pick-up/drop-off reservation.
