Location and how to get here

The registration and most talks will take place in the lecture rooms LT1-LT4 of the School of Chemistry building. Some talks are in 1.11 and 1.11a of the Merchant Venturers building, and the public lectures are in the Great Hall of the Wills Memorial Building (Monday) and the Tyndall Lecture Theatre in the Physics Building (Wednesday). All locations are in the main University of Bristol campus in the centre of town, and are very close to each other.
