Practical Information

Maps of York showing the location of the university campus can be obtained hereand here. Mathematics is in Goodricke College, building 24 on the campus map. Here is the map of car parks on campus. The taxi fare from the railway station is around £6. Buses are supposed to be every 15 minutes, but can be rather random -- sometimes one has to wait half-an-hour. The station is on the north-west side of York while the campus is about a mile and a half south-east of the city centre: the walk takes about 35 minutes.

National Rail Enquiries

Tea, coffee, biscuits and doughnuts will be provided free of charge.
We'll have lunch somewhere on campus (paying individually).
After the meeting we'll go to a pub (the Olde Starre Inne on Stonegate, right in the city centre and about 5 mins walk from the railway station), and maybe, for anyone interested, on for a meal.

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.
