Exceptional funding and participants traveling with children

We are offering support to women with infants and young children for whom it is difficult to attend conferences due to child-care related issues.  We have funding to defray some of the travel costs for female participants' infants, along with the travel costs of a caretaker to accompany the female participant to the event.  Women attending the conference can request this support during registration.  There will also be a play room and a nap/nursing room in the Illini Union, a building adjacent to the mathematics building.  These rooms are set up especially for our conference.  Please keep in mind that all children must be accompanied by a caretaker.  Finally, participants traveling with children have the option of staying in a suite hotel room which is more fitting for families.  Please see link to Resources for Participants with Children for more helpful information on attending the conference with children.
