M-theory on G2- manifolds lead to Kaluza-Klein compactifications of four-dimensional theories with N=1 supersymetry. Such theories are interesting from a phenomenological point of view as well as for mathematics.
The theme of the workshop is the mathematical applications of string theory and M-theory. Topics include Kaluza-Klein compactifications of string theory and M-theory on G2 and Spin (7) manifolds. Among other things the newly discovered twisted connected sum construction due to Kovalev will extensively be studied.

Easterwood Airport (CLL) is located only 2 miles from campus and offers daily flights from/to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).
You may also wish to consider flying into Houston-area airports (George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH); William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) and complete the rest of the journey (100 miles) by rental car or airport shuttle. You can arrange shuttle service to & from Houston airports with GroundShuttle.
The hotel we have booked is the Hampton Inn College Station, 320 Texas Avenue South, College Station, Texas, 77840, (979) 846-0184. It is around a 15 minute walk from the hotel to the Mitchell Institute.
We will make all the arrangements and provide the hotel with visitors details, so individuals do not need to get in touch with the hotel prior to arrival. Hotel dates will be made accordingly from Sunday, March 25- Saturday, March 31. Please contact Amanda Barreiro with your dates of arrival and departure for the hotel if they will be outside of these dates.
The closest visitor parking is provided by the Northside Parking Garage, which is just across the street from the Mitchell Institute, at the intersection of Ireland Street and University Drive: http://aggiemap.tamu.edu/?Bldg=0388.
