Mar 30 – 31, 2017
Emmanuel College, Cambridge
Europe/London timezone


The Workshop will take place in Emmanuel College, Cambridge. The lodging, meals and all talks will take place inside the College. More information about Emmanuel College can be found here. An extensive virtual tour of the College is available here.  A notable physicist associated with the College was Thomas Young.

Two types of student rooms have been reserved: single en-suite (private bathroom, GBP65/night) and standard (shared bathroom, GBP45/night). These prices include breakfast. In the standard rooms, we are told, not many people will share the same facilities. Double en-suite college rooms may be available for a few participants with accompanying spouse. Please contact the organisers in such a case.

All talks will take place in the The Upper Hall and in The Gardner Room

Breakfast and lunch will be served in Emmanuel College. The Conference Dinner on Thursday 30th March will also take place in the College.

Dinners for the remaining evenings are not planned. The attendees are encouraged to explore the many pubs and restaurants in the vicinity of Emmanuel. Many are available right in front of the main entrance of Emmanuel. A local attraction with physics associations, The Eagle Pub, is just a short walk away!

There will be an opportunity to visit the Wren Library at Trinity College for a private viewing of items of scientific interest (including Newton's Principia - see the link above for details). The special exhibition will be open to the public 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri of the week of the Workshop. No reservation is needed; please, just identify yourself at Trinity's Porters Lodge as a participant at the Workshop at Emmanuel College and they will direct you to the Library. We may try to organize a group visit if more people are interested. Given the Workshop schedule, this likely will have to be either Wed afternoon or 4-5pm on Fri, after the end of the Workshop.
