Practical Information

Train information can be obtained here.

For directions to the School of Mathematics click here. Please note that due to extensive building works we recommend that you enter the University via the St Thomas' street entrance and walk along Kings Road.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided free of charge. We will provide a map showing the location of nearby sandwich shops and restaurants for lunch. Sandwiches can be consumed in our spectacular penthouse coffee room.

Limited funds are available to help with travel expenses of participants with no other source of funding. We hope that this will encourage postgraduate students and postdocs to attend the meeting. Please email Ian Moss in advance if you would like to apply for support and please book early to take advantage of the cheaper fares.
