Past Itinerary
In case you're wondering where I've been, rather than where I'm going, here are some past excerpts of my itinerary. Warning: some of these have been reconstructed after the fact, so may not be complete. Also, links are not guaranteed to work, and I don't promise to fix any of them.1999

February 15-19 | In Muenster, Germany, for a conference on p-adic differential equations. |
February 21 | Presidents Day holiday; no classes at MIT. The following day is an "MIT Monday", which probably means I get a bit of a break from teaching. |

March 11-13 | At the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament in Stamford, CT. But as usual, note conflict with the next item. |
March 12-16 | The increasingly misnamed Arizona Winter School takes place at the University of New Mexico (Albuquerque). But as usual, note conflict with the previous item; also note that this does not land during my spring break, so it conflicts also with my teaching. Sigh. |
March 18-20 | A conference is being held at Brown in honor of Stephen Lichtenbaum's 65th birthday. Since I teach Fridays, I probably will only make it down on the 19th and 20th. (An offer of a ride would be much appreciated!) |

The following weekend is a Pacific Northwest Number Theory Conference in Seattle; I'll pick that up on the way back. |
March 11-15 | The Arizona Winter School takes place in Tucson; the topic is computational and algorithmic aspects. However, I won't be able to make it; among other things, I have an out-of-town visitor coming on the 13th. |
March 24-26 | The American Crossword Puzzle Tournament takes place in Stamford, CT; since I teach Friday 2-3, I will only be arriving late Friday. See also next item. |
March 27-31 | Spring break at MIT, which among other things coincides with an MSRI workshop on "Cohomological approaches to rational points". I'm no longer sure whether I'm going to attend even part of this. |
April 17-18 | Patriots Day holiday at MIT. No classes, but I have to be on campus (for a choir rehearsal) Tuesday afternoon. |
April 21-23 | Projected dates of the USAMO grading session. The good news is that it's in Cambridge. The bad news is that it conflicts with the next two items. |
April 22 | The MIT Chamber Chorus spring concert takes place at 8 PM in Kresge. This causes problems with the adjacent items. |
April 22-23 | The AMS sectional meeting at the University of New Hampshire has a special session on arithmetic geometry and modular forms and another on Galois theory in arithmetic and geometry. However, note conflict with the previous two items; this more or less ensures I'll only be able to attend Sunday. Very likely giving a talk that day. (The Galois theory session accompanies a workshop at Penn to be held April 24-26.) |
April 29-30 | The AMS sectional meeting at San Francisco State University has a special session on computational arithmetic geometry. Giving a talk April 30. |

June 12-16 | At Universteit Leiden for a conference on "rings of low rank" (better known to some of us as "Bhargavology"). Giving a talk probably June 14. Not sure what I'm doing over the weekend, aside from the US Puzzle Championship online on the 17th. |
June 19-24 | At a conference on Hodge theory (including p-adic aspects) at Venice International University. Giving a talk at some point. |
July 7-August 11 | The Clay Math Institute is holding a summer school in arithmetic geometry. |
