Dear friends and colleagues,

Herewith more program information for the first 
PMA symposium on Friday, October 26, 2012 and the 13th
annual Midwest PhilMath Workshop (MWPMW 13).

Notre Dame's main hôtel is being closed in the 
next few days to undergo a year long renovation. Because of this,
it is imperative that you contact Harriet Baldwin 
(<mailto:baldwin.1 at nd.edu>baldwin.1 at nd.edu) in 
the next few days (by September 30th) and make 
room reservations. There is a press for hotel
space this fall and reservations need to be made earlier than usual.

When you contact Mrs. Baldwin, please let her 
know if you will attend the Saturday evening 
banquet for the MWPMW 13. All attending MWPMW 13 are cordially invited
to attend as guests of the university.
