Those interested are welcome to attend for all or any part of the event. The two hosting institutions are less than half an hour apart by tube; it is hoped that many people will be able to attend for both days.There is no formal registration process and seats will be allocated each day on a first come, first served basis.


Some funds are available to contribute to the basic, sensible travel expenses of UK-based research students who wish to attend the meetings (unfortunately, the terms of our funding do not cover students from overseas).  We would ask you to keep costs to a minimum, using public transport booked in advance on all occasions and off-peak student travel tariffs wherever possible.  Receipts for all journeys must be maintained as proof of travel.  At this stage, we are unable to confirm the maximum amount available; once the event has taken place we will reimburse UK-based student expenses, wherever possible, on a case-by-case basis.  Official expense claim forms will be available to collect at the event.  Please contact Rebecca Lumb| for further information.

There are also some funds available from the London Mathematical Society for help with childcare costs. Further details can be found at http://www.lms.ac.uk/content/childcare-supplementary-grants.
