Location
The morning lectures are taking place in the Manning Clarke Centre, Theatre 4 (building 26a) and the afternoon lectures in the Cockcroft/Oliphant Link Building Seminar Room (building 58d, 1st floor). See the printable map.
Morning tea will be served in the common room of the John Dedman Mathematical Sciences building (building 27, room 1175), and afternoon tea in the Link Building.
The Christmas party, on the Friday afternoon, will be held in the Theoretical Physics seminar and tea rooms, in the Le Couteur building (building 59, 3rd floor).
