Computing facilities

Each participant will be issued with a username and password during registration. Terminals are located close to the Main Lecture Theatre (Meeting Room 2) that is clearly sign posted. These will allow you to use ssh or telnet to your host institutions and use the web.  A limited amount of printing is also possible. A wireless network is in the final stages of installation and is likely to be running in time for the conference.

Coffee/Tea breaks and lunches

Coffee, tea and other refreshments will be provided in the morning and afternoon breaks in the cafeteria area. Lunches will be provided in the cafeteria to registered particpants only, so please wear your name badges for identification.


The conference banquet will be at Trinity College on Wednesday.  A reception in the Old Kitchens at 7.00pm will be followed by the meal in the main dining hall at 7.45pm. You will all have filled in a meal choice.  These are colour coded on the banquet tickets that you will get at registration.  It is essential that you bring your meal ticket with you and it will not be possible to change your meal choice since Trinity have been given the numbers for each choice.
