The registration desk will be open in Chemistry Building 1S from 12:00. Delegates may also put up their posters here from 12:00. For delegates arriving by public transport Chemistry is most easily accessible from the bus stop at the top of Bathwick Hill but can also be reached with a 5-10 minute walk from the main bus terminal Note that the conference lecture theatre 3WN 2.1 is approximately 5 minutes' walk from Chemistry. Any delegates not registering by 13:30 may pick up their conference packs from outside 3WN ( outside the lecture theatre) from ~ 13:40. Note that no lunch is included but delegates may wish to use the campus cafes and shops (map).
