Housing and fee

Full board and lodging will be provided at Churchill College, which is adjacent to CMS. The cost for the school and lodging is £2000.

Dinner is served on Sunday evening. Directions to Churchill and the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS) can be found at and respectively. It is a short (5 mins) walk from Churchill to CMS.

Registration will be open in Churchill on Sunday September 9 from 17:00-19:00 and again from 8:00 in CMS on Monday September 10.

Research presentations

There will be an opportunity to present a brief (3 mins maximum) description of your research on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings (11/12 Sept.). Please bring two slides (maximum) on a USB stick for this purpose. You may also, if you wish, bring a poster that we will display during the school.


You should bring sensible clothes to wear in the lab - no open-toe footwear will be allowed. You may also like to bring clothing suitable for taking part in sporting activities that will take place.


Please contact Doris Allen ( if you have any questions.
