Building Models with Metastable Supersymmetry Breaking
Maps of York showing the location of the university campus can be
obtained hereand here. Mathematics
is in Goodricke College (see the campus
map); the Physics department is adjacent. (Note that due to building work, access to PL002 is only via the external fire-door, along the lakeside path from Goodricke and around the far entrance to the Physics building.) Here is the list
of car parks on campus. The taxi fare from the railway station is
£7. Buses (no.4) are every 10 minutes. The station is on the
north-west side of York while the campus is about a mile and a half
of the city centre: the walk takes about 35 minutes.
Drinks and biscuits will be provided free of
We'll have lunch on campus (paying individually), at Wentworth College.
Limited funds are available to help with travel expenses of
those with no other source of funding, especially postgraduate students
and postdocs. Please book early to take advantage of the cheaper
advance-purchase train fares.
