  • Unless otherwise indicated, the conference talks and poster sessions, coffee breaks and lunches will take place in the Maths Institute using the Atrium space and Maths Lecture Theatre MS.01.
  • Residential delegates can have breakfast in the Rootes building before the daily sessions begin. They should confirm these arrangements on arrival (when picking up keys for their rooms etc). There are plenty of places to get tea/coffee and provisions, such as the Library cafe, Arts Centre and Costcutter supermarket which is next to the Students Union Building.
  • There will be a Welcome Reception in the University Arts Centre (located on Campus) in the evening of Monday 5th July.
  • The conference dinner will be in Stratford on Avon. Coaches will leave from behind the Maths Institute at approximately 6:30pm on the evening of Tuesday 6th July.
