Strings 2002


THE VENUE for the conference is the Cavendish Laboratory, off Madingley Road, which is easiest to approach from the footpath (the `Coton Footpath') that starts close to Robinson College.

PRE-REGISTRATION: You are urged to participate in the pre-registration from 5:00pm-8:00pm on Sunday July 14th. This will take place in the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS) which is entered via a path next to the Newton Institute on Clarkson Road. Some light refreshments will be available.

REGISTRATION will also take place from 8:00am on July 15th at the conference venue.

THE FIRST SESSION starts at 9:00am on Monday July 15th.

THE CONFERENCE ENDS at 12:30pm on Saturday July 20th.

POSTER DISPLAYS: There will be several large poster display boards in one of the large coffee rooms. Although we have not organized a formal poster session these boards can be used for poster contributions. Contributors are urged to produce lucid and readable posters of not more than two A3 size pages. They should ask one of the conference secretaries to pin up their contributions.

THE WEATHER is quite variable. Temperatures are commonly between 14 and 30 degrees and rain may or may not be frequent! Bring something waterproof.

SPECIAL TRANSPORT REQUIREMENTS: Since the conference venue is only a 10-15 minute walk from Robinson College, we are not intending to provide buses. Anyone who requires transport should inform the conference organisers as soon as possible.

ANY CANCELLATIONS on or after Friday July 5th will be subject to a cancellation fee on college accommodation costs. As announced in our web pages this is imposed on us by the colleges. In the case of Robinson College at this late stage the fee is 100 per cent of the costs.
