Workshop Venue:

The City of Cambridge is famous throughout the world for its University and colleges, retaining the ambience of an historic medieval town, while remaining a hotbed for some of the most recent scientific developments. It uniquely offers a combination of ancient heritage and modern facilities.

Centre for Mathematical Sciences

The workshop is to be held in the Centre for Mathematical Sciences which houses the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. The address is:

Centre for Mathematical Sciences
University of Cambridge
Wilberforce Road
Cambridge CB3 0WA
On arrival at the CMS site, please report to reception in the main central core (pictured right). To pinpoint the geographical location of the CMS within Cambridge, please refer to the local area maps below. You should approach the site on foot from a walkway that meets Clarkson Road next to the Isaac Newton Institute. Enter the main CMS courtyard through a gatehouse on the left as you proceed along the pathway and the central core will be directly in front of you.

Accommodation information:

Conference participants will be housed in one of two locations:

1. Invited conference participants and speakers will be housed in the new Stephen Hawking House on West Road located in West Cambridge within few minutes walking distance of the Centre for Mathematical Sciences. (This accommodation was built on the site of Stephen's former home.) While Gonville and Caius is itself one of Cambridge's oldest colleges, it offers this modern comfortable accommodation in a pleasant setting with good facilities and notable gardens. Participants will be accommodated in modern bedrooms with ensuite facilities.

On arrival, please report to the Porters Lodge which is located at the West Road gatehouse in front of the building. Please note that accommodation is available on the evening of Sunday 16th December for invited speakers and participants travelling from elsewhere.

The accommodation address is:
Stephen Hawking House
West Road
Telephone: +44 1223 332418

2. Other conference participants will be housed conveniently on Storey's Way in new accommodation recently built by Trinity Hall (funded in part by donations from Denis Avery, a major benefactor of the CTC). Applicants will have to arrange their own accommodation directly with the college once their registration has been confirmed, on or soon after 7th December 2007. Details of how to proceed will be explained with the emailed confirmation - do not contact the college until you have received this information.

Participants wishing to arrange alternative accommodation can find further information about hotels and bed & breakfasts in Cambridge at the Cambridge city website.

The workshop banquet will be held in the Trinity College Dining Hall (tbc):
