Other events

There will be space for displaying posters, and it may be possible to arrange contributed talks if there is sufficient demand.

There will be a conference dinner on Saturday evening, and there will be an expedition to the Peak District for a gentle walk and pub supper on Friday evening.

Participants may also like to know that Peter May will be giving a Hardy Lecture to the title `Equivariant topology and non-equivariant applications' on Monday to the Sheffield department; this is not part of the conference, but you are welcome to come.


Lectures will take place in Rooms 3 and 4 on the second floor of the Hicks Building, Hounsfield Road, Sheffield, UK.


There will be a registration fee of 40 GBP. This is one of the conditions of the LMS grant, and will be used for conference expenses.


The most convenient airport is Manchester airport; there is a good rail link to Sheffield from the terminal building. From the rail station you can catch the supertram to the University stop. Or take the number 60 bus, and get off where it crosses the ring road.

I have booked blocks of single rooms for the nights of 30th and 31st May at three local hotels. Please CONTACT ME DIRECTLY, by 31st March, if you want to take advantage of this, and benefit from the conference rates. If you want to stay for longer, or you want a double or family room be sure to let me know about that too. The Rutland Hotel is by far the most convenient, and speakers will be booked there unless they ask me to do otherwise.


Partially supported by the London Mathematical Society and the National Science Foundation. We will be able to subsidise speakers and British research students, and perhaps also some US participants, but others will have to fund themselves.


If you are interested in attending please let me know by pre-registering as soon as possible, and in any case by 31st March, not forgetting to include Only those pre-registered will receive the third and final announcement.
