2011 Dates

Next Meeting

The inaugural meeting of this Joint Research Group will be at Warwick on Thursday, 17th February, 2011. The talks will take place in the Zeeman (Maths) Building. To find MS.05 go up the stairs you see when you first enter the Zeeman building, and then the second flight of stairs on your left. MS.05 is then behind you. Alternatively, use the lifts on the far side of the atrium to go to the second floor.

Directions to Warwick are available here. The Mathematics institute is in the Zeeman Building, which is number 37 on the map available here. This is closest to the second bus stop in the main part of campus, or parking lot 15 (which is pay-and-display). Warning: The University of Warwick is not in the town of Warwick, but on the outskirts of Coventry - the correct train stations are Coventry or Leamington Spa.
