The Workshop will be held at Pembroke College, Cambridge, September 26-29, 2010.
The University of Cambridge is rich in history - its famous Colleges
and University buildings attract visitors from all over the world. But
the University's museums and collections also hold many treasures which
give an exciting insight into some of the scholarly activities, both past
and present, of the University's academics and students. The University
of Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world and one of
the largest in the United Kingdom. Its reputation for outstanding academic
achievement is known world-wide and reflects the intellectual achievement
of its students, as well as the world-class original research carried out
by the staff of the University and the Colleges.

When you arrive, please report to the Pembroke College Porters' Lodge, which is located at the intersection of Trumpington Street and Pembroke Street. They will give you a key to your room.
Please note that the first meal arranged for the Workshop is Sunday dinner in the evening. That means that those arriving on Saturday will have to make their own meal arrangements. This should not be a problem, as there are several hundred restaurants, pubs, etc to choose from in Cambridge.
You will be asked to vacate your room on the morning of your day of
departure, but facilities for storing luggage will be available.
Wi-fi access via eduroam will be available in all the public areas and in the College gardens. Participants should register with eduroam at their home institutions beforehand to take advantage of this. (You only need to do this once.) If your institution does not participate in eduroam (unlikely) then we will have alternative, but less convenient, access arrangements.
