The speakers above have kindly agreed to give short courses of lectures in the first week of the conference.

Plenary lectures and contributed talks:
In addition there will be a programme of one hour invited lectures and short research presentations.
The conference banquets will be held on the Tuesdays of each week. If you have specific dietary requirements, please send them to Gunnar Traustasson (gt223bath.ac.uk).
There will be conference outings on the Wednesdays, for which the fees are included in full registration. Further details of those are on the website.
We also propose to offer two or three optional "pay as you go" outings, as follows.
These three trips are subject to confirmation and will depend on sufficient interest. If you would like to go on any of these trips, please contact Gunnar to let him know. Outing fees are payable in cash at the conference.
Other Social Events
There will be opportunities for music making in the evenings. At the 1997 conference, barn dances were very popular. There will also be an opportunity for classical or popular music recitals. Please bring your instruments if you wish to make music.
We will have access to social space on campus in the evenings (music making and dancing encouraged). There will be a bar open until 11pm every evening. There is an associated skittles alley.
