The conference will take place in the Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS), on the north-west side of Cambridge, UK (directions to the CMS in Cambridge).

Accommodation will be provided in single ensuite rooms at, Wychfield Site, Trinity Hall College, less than 10 min walking distance (see map) from the Centre for Mathematical Sciences. PLEASE NOTE that Wychfield Site is NOT located at the main building complex of Trinity Hall College in the city centre.

Cambridge has its own airport but it is usually more convenient to fly into London Heathrow or Stansted and take the train (about 2 hours from Heathrow, 30-50 minutes from Stansted) or bus (about 3 hours from Heathrow, or 1 hour from Stansted) to Cambridge.

The bus stop "Madingly Park/Ride" is closest to Wychfield Site and the CMS. You can either walk from there (about 20min, see directions here) or call a taxi: e.g. Camcab +44 1223 704704 or Pather Taxi +44 1223 715715.
Or you can stop at the bus stop "City Centre" (close to the park "Parker's Piece") which is a good 30min walk from the venue, but taxis are usually ready and waiting during daytime.

At Cambridge railway station taxis are waiting at all times (about £ 10).
To take a bus from there you'll either have to walk a bit to the Uni4 bus station or change buses in the city centre (see
