Arrival and accommodation.

We expect most participants to arrive on Monday night, the 1st of April and leave on Friday, the 5th of April at lunch time. The workshop starts on the 2nd of April (Tuesday) at 8.30am and finishes on the 5th of April at 1pm. Rooms for participants have been booked at the Best Western "The Cromwell Hotel", at 110 Cromwell Rd, next to Gloucester Rd Underground station. Each room is en-suite and shared with another participant of their same gender. Breakfast is included. The price per night is 60.


London can be reached by plane (airports Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and City Airport), train (main stations include Kings Cross-St Pancras, Victoria, Euston, Charing Cross, Waterloo, Paddington and Liverpool St) or bus (mainly Victoria Station). Train tickets can be bought through National Rail.

Venue and schedule.

The lectures on Tuesday will take place in "De Morgan House", the London Mathematical Society headquarters at Russell Square. From Wednesday onwards the programme will take place in Imperial College London. Again, see the website for more details. The lectures start at 9.00am every day and finish at 5pm. Check the good map. The closest tube station to the Hotel is Gloucester Road, serving the Circle, District and Picadilly lines. De Morgan House is very close to the tube station "Russell Square", serving the Picadilly line. Finally, the closest stop to Imperial College London is South Kensington, serving the Circle, District and Picadilly lines. Notice that the hotel is in walking distance from Imperial, no need to take the tube. The cheapest way to travel on the tube is to buy an Oyster card upon arrival for 3 as deposit and then put credit on it (just like a mobile phone card). When leaving London the card can be returned in any London station and get back the deposit. This way each single trip is in between 1.50 and 2, whereas a single ticket bought individually can be over 4.

Workshop fee and social dinner

When the workshop was announced we mentioned a workshop fee of 40. Fortunately, it seems we will be able to drop most of it, and use what we ask towards a social dinner, which will take place on Wednesday. Once the participants have confirmed attendance we will be able to give an exact figure, but we do not expect it to be over 20.

Poster session.

There will be a poster session on the 2nd of April. We would appreciate if all participants in their second year of PhD or further could present a poster (of course 1st year students can also present a poster if they wish).
