Please do not redirect your email to this address.
This is an emergency service only. For really important emergencies,
see the next point.
- The Conference Office will be open during weekdays
in building 1W (pronounced One West). The administrator
there will be Nada Harvey. She can pass on messages from
the outside world made to +44 1225 323747 (internationally),
01225 323747 nationally, 323747 from Bath and

- The Emergency Contact Number (mobile phone) for the conference
organizers, valid from July 24th - August 10th is 0802 731972
from anywhere in the UK (including Bath). From outside the UK
use +44 802 731972. This number is primarily for reporting
travel difficulties, seeking urgent
advice, or sending very important messages to conferees when no other
method is available.
- Telnet and ftp; if your domestic institution operates a `gateway',
it may be that you will not be able to telnet or ftp to or from your
home account from Bath unless you register the relevant Bath addresses
with your own computer service. The contact from Bath will
come from one of two proxies - solomon.bath.ac.uk 188.8.131.52
and tamarin.bath.ac.uk 184.108.40.206. If in doubt, tell your
local gurus these addresses and I.P. numbers.
Domestic Travel to Bath
Train timetables in the UK. Note that the route planner at
this site is sometimes a little loopy. If your route looks bizarre,
try forcing an intermediate station. Also note that it tries to minimize
the arrival time, not necessarily the price of the ticket.
Ask demanding questions of ticket vendors (ask for alternative cheap routes,
discounts for travelling out of peak hours etc); if you don't ask,
you will almost certainly not be told.
Travel to Bath
British diplomatic missions (addresses, fax numbers etc). Follow
the link corresponding to the initial letter of the country
of interest. For example t.tex for information about the British
mission in Togo.
