Practical Information

Train information can be obtained here.

For directions to the Department of Mathematical Sciences click here. The talks will probably take place in room CM221.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided free of charge. There will be a sandwich lunch for which participants might be charged (depending on funding).

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 Patrick Dorey in advance if you would like to apply for support and please book early to take advantage of the cheaper fares.
