Useful information can be obtained here.

Note that Canterbury has two train stations, Canterbury East and Canterbury West. The University can be reached by a pleasant half hour walk from Canterbury West, however, it might be more convenient to take a taxi to the University. If the taxi driver doesn't know the entrance to the School of Mathematics, then ask to stop at the bus stop Darwin College. The School of Mathematics is right behind it.

If you are traveling by Eurostar from Belgium or France, please note that the closest station is Ashford International. There are regular trains between Ashford and Canterbury (West). The journey takes approximately 20 min. Note that Southeastern has recently changed its rules: your journey Ashford-Canterbury is no longer covered by your Eurostar ticket. So you will also need to buy a ticket Ashford-Canterbury.


Accommodation will be on campus. The price for a single ensuite bedroom is around £30 per night. I have some limited funding available to help those who need help to cover their accommodation expenses.  Please register before 10th June 2010 if you need accommodation.

Conference Dinner

The conference dinner will take place on Friday 25th June at Deeson's.

The menu of the Conference Dinner is available here. This is a three course menu. I need to know your choice (1 starter, 1 main course and 1 dessert) before the conference starts! Please send me you preferences by 14th June. (I understand it is quite early, but if you don't do so, I will choose for you!!)
