Travel

The new School of Mathematical Sciences Building is located on the main campus, University Park Campus; see building no. 20 on the campus map. The talks will be in the Keighton Auditorium (building no. 56) next to it.

Accommodation is in Hugh Stewart Hall just on the other side of the "main visitor car park", see campus map.

An overview how to get there is available at the university page maps and directions.

For flights, the best option beside East Midlands Airport is Birmingham and Stansted. Birmingham is a 45 minute taxi ride (55 pounds) or 1 1/2 hour train ride to Nottingham. From Stansted, you best take the train via Ely and Peterborough, which is not too expensive (always buy return tickets which are often much cheaper than two singles). This journey takes 3 hours, but it is through nice countryside. (If you happen to change trains in Ely, there is a very impressive cathedral, worth a visit at a stop-over.) For train times, see www.nationalrail.co.uk.

A number of bus services run from the city centre to the University's campuses at University Park. There are Buses from Nottingham train station and Buses from East Midlands Airport and Taxis are available too (more information).

Buses from Nottingham train station

For University Park campus, the bus stops closest to the train station are Broadmarsh bus station (for Trent Barton′s Indigo and Skylink services) or Canal Street (for Nottingham City Transport′s 13 and 14 services). "University south entrance" is the stop to get to the conference. The 13 has a stop on the campus, just after passing the Keighton Auditorium.

Buses from East Midlands Airport

There is a 24 hour Skylink bus service from East Midlands Airport to Nottingham City Centre. Buses run every 30 minutes until midnight, then hourly until 4am when the half hourly service resumes. The service goes past the University Park Campus (on route to Nottingham Broadmarsh bus station). "University south entrance" is the stop to get to the conference.

Parking permit

Participants that come with their own car need a parking permission to use any car park on the campus. If you need one, ask the conference secretary in advance to the conference.

Taxis

Nottingham City Council licenses two types of vehicles — Hackney Carriages and Private Hire vehicles. If you get into a Private Hire car without prebooking it (that is you stop it or find it in the street) you may not be covered by insurance. Private Hire drivers call this "flying" and they know they are breaking the law. If you are involved in an accident you will experience difficulty in claiming for any damage or injuries.
