PASCOS 2011 will begin on Sunday 3rd July with an evening reception at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS), Clarkson Road and Wilberforce Road, Cambridge. The registration desk will open at 6.30pm on Sunday with drinks available and then a buffet dinner will be served from 7:00pm. The meeting will begin in earnest at 9.30am on Monday morning in the main lecture theatre, but the registration desk will open earlier at 9.00am for those unable to make the reception on Sunday.

The banquet will be held in King's College Dining Hall on Wednesday 6th July. Drinks will begin at 7.15pm and dinner will be served at 8pm. Gary Gibbons is the after dinner speaker. The meeting will end formally on Friday afternoon after lunch on 8th July.

All plenary sessions will be held in the large Wolfson Lecture Theatre (MR2) in the Centre for Mathematical Sciences with lunch and coffee provided in the central core for registered participants. Coffee and refreshments are are also available from the cafeteria in the CMS central core from 9:30am every morning until 4:00pm.

Links to pdf files with the full programmes of both plenary lectures and parallel sessions are given below.
