Napier meeting

A 5-day meeting, involving expository lectures and shorter contributed talks (see the Scientific programme, the list of abstracts and the schedule), will take place at The Crown Hotel (corner of Bridge Street and Hardinge Road) in the Ahuriri suburb of Napier 18-22 February 2008.

The Crown Hotel is a 5-star art deco hotel. Accommodation is available at The Crown Hotel itself and there are a number of close by alternatives.

There are other locations too including some in the seaside suburb of Westshore - a 20+ minute walk across the estuary, around the yacht club, and past the fishing boats.

Since accommodation in Napier in February is in hot demand we recommend that participants book early.

Further information about Napier may be found at the Visitor Information Centre.

The conference dinner will take place at the Church Road Winery on Thursday 21 February.

To register for the meeting please go to our registration page and payment page and follow the instructions there. The registration fee for the meeting will be $150 (free for students) and the conference dinner will be $50.

This meeting has now taken place. Here is a photo of the participants.

We managed to video-tape many of the lectures and have produced files in mp4 format that you may download from our video-link page.
