Note that the meeting will start on Monday after lunch and will finish on Friday around lunch time. Thus, travelling on Monday morning / Friday afternoon might work for some.

Also note that due to the limited size of the room where the meeting will be held, we are only able to offer participation in the meeting for speakers who have been selected to give an invited or contributed talk. Thus, please do not make any travel arrangements / bookings if you have not been selected for a talk.
