Getting to the Kelvin Building


Most of you will hopefully be in hotels which are walking distance from the University. The local area map shows the location of the University within the West End of Glasgow, but to find your way around campus you will need the detailed map at


If you are travelling to the meeting from within the UK, we DO NOT RECOMMEND that you come to the University by car, as parking around the University is very restricted. If you do have to bring your car, please let us know in advance so we can try and have a spot reserved for you on campus (no guarantees, unfortunately). There is information on getting here at


Start of meeting


The meeting starts on Wednesday 24th March at 9am in Lecture Room 312 of the Kelvin Building. This will be signposted from the main foyer of the Kelvin Building. The building, and the lecture theatre, will open from 8.30am. The first plenary session (9-10) will provide an introduction to the meeting and local information. Thereafter we will break up into 3 groups and follow the timetable given at




The breakout and main rooms will be equipped with dataprojectors, overhead projectors and whiteboards/blackboards. Please let us know if you anticipate using anything else. REMEMBER, though your laptops will be able to cope with local voltage and frequency, you will need an adaptor to change to one of UK 3-pin electrical plugs. We do not follow the European standard

system. So what's new. A picture of a UK plug can be found on:


Ample internet access will be available via our terminals and for participants' laptops though the main aim is personal scientific interaction. Please also consider bringing 802.11b/g wireless cards for wireless access within the building. See

Working Groups


It is the responsibility of the WG leaders to direct the programme for the individual working groups. You should all have been contacted by your team leader in this regard.

Scheduled coffee breaks will be held in the departmental common room, which will be signposted. There are no plans for catered lunches, but there are ample cafes, restaurants and sandwich bars in the area. We will provide a list at the meeting.
