Venue and transportation
The workshop takes place in Glasgow University, department
of Maths, room 325, third floor.
For the speakers, we booked the rooms in two hotels:
Heritage Hotel and Ambassador Hotel, both
within walking distance to the University.
Department of Maths is 15 University gardens.
It's a nondescript gray building on campus, 5 floors,
about 50 meters from the Hillhead subway station,
and from the intersection of Byres road and
University avenue (see the campus map).
Maths is building D4.
The Hillhead underground station is on
this map, too.
Ambassador Hotel is 7, Kelvin Dr,
Glasgow, G20 8QG, UK, +44 141 946 1018
It is situated next to Kelvin River, and
a few blocks north from the Hillhead station
(which is marked on the map). The walk to Hillhead
is straight along Queen Margaret drive, which
becomes Byres road one block after; 10-15 minutes
to the department.
Heritage Hotel is
4-5 Alfred Terrace,
Glasgow, G12 8RF, +44 141 339 6955
It is situated 1 1/2 blocks from the place
where Queen Margaret drive intersects
Great Western road and becomes Byres road.
Not far from Ambassador Hotel, and the same
10-15 minutes to the University.
