  Please note that parking is not available at the Mathematical Institute. For those who want to drive here, we advise using the
Park & Ride services, parking at Pear Tree, and taking the number 300 bus which stops opposite the entrance to the Mathematical Institute on Woodstock Road.

  Lectures will be in lecture room L4 on Monday 18th - Thursday 21st, and lecture room L5 on Friday 22nd. We also have seminar room C4 booked as a break-out room.
  Only the basement and part of the ground floor of the Mathematical Institute are open to the public, and to participants in the Graduate School. The higher floors are off-limits to those without a key.

Food and drink.
The Graduate School will provide tea, coffee and biscuits during breaks in the mornings and afternoons. We will not provide lunch. However, there is a café in the basement of the Mathematical Institute, open 8.30-16.15 Monday-Friday, where you can buy your own lunch at very reasonable prices. There are also shops and restaurants nearby.
  It is likely that we will organize one or more group evening dinners in restaurants during the week, for those that want to come. If we do this, we will do it on the day by announcing in lectures a restaurant, time, and ball-park figure for cost, and asking for a show of hands for who wants to come; those who do should pay cash for their own meal at the restaurant.

Wi-Fi access.
There is free wi-fi access throughout the Maths Institute building, via a network called 'The Cloud'. For academics who already have an 'eduroam' account, the eduroam network is also available, and gives better results.

All participants are expected to register, including Oxford locals. There will be a registration fee of £25 (excluding speakers), to cover costs of tea and coffee breaks, a drinks reception, conference packs, etc.
See the registration page for details.

Funding and Accommodation.
The deadline for applying for funding for accommodation (May 15th 2017) has expired, and we have already promised all the money we have available to people who applied by the deadline. So if you have not already applied, we are sorry, the Graduate School is not able to support your accommodation, or other costs.
  For graduate students whose accommodation costs are supported by the Graduate School: everyone in this category has already received an e-mail offering them accommodation for a specific range of dates (17-23 or 17-22 or 18-22 September), and has replied to accept it. You should check in after 2pm on your first day, at the lodge of St Hugh's College, on St Margaret's Road, 7 minutes walk North of the Maths Institute. Accommodation is in student rooms with shared bathrooms. Towels are provided, and breakfast is included.
Non-local speakers who need a hotel will be accommodated in the Linton Lodge hotel.
  Other participants must arrange their own accommodation.
One good option, usually reasonably priced, is bed and breakfast in University accommodation, where you may be able to stay in a student room in an Oxford college. There are a number of smaller hotels such as the Cotswold Lodge Hotel, Linton Lodge Hotel and The Buttery Hotel. Cheaper, but further away, there is Oxford Peartree Travelodge. Or you could try AirBNB.
