Lectures will be in Lecture Theatre 10 of the Roger Stevens Lecture Theatre
Block, adjacent to the School of Mathematics.

We'll be organising a dinner afterwards. For lunch, Dugald suggests the Staff
Common Room -- he will take a group of people along there around 12.45.

The meeting is funded by grants from the London Mathematical
Society, the Edinburgh Mathematical Society and the Glasgow Mathematical Journal, with support also from the Marie Curie projects
MRTN-CT-2004-512234 and MEXC-CT-2005-024052.
