Seventieth Meeting of the Transpennine Topology Triangle and Toric Topology Manchester 2009

Date and Location

Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 November 2009

The talks will take place in Room G209, on the ground floor of the Alan Turing Building. This is on the east side of the campus, off Upper Brook Street and about 100m south of the junction with Booth Street East. It is about 15 minutes walk from Piccadilly station, through the old UMIST campus and under the Mancunian Way. The building is number 46 on the University Campus map.

Refreshment breaks will be held in the Atrium Bridge Common Room, on the first floor, where there are ample facilities for mathematical discussion.

Lunch is available at several local venues, including the cafe in the atrium, the vegetarian "On the Eighth Day" restaurant, the "Tai Pan" Chinese restaurant across Upper Brook Street, and Blackwells Bookshop. We expect to visit a nearby restaurant on Monday 2 November for early-evening dinner.

We regret that we do not have the facilities to arrange overnight accommodation, but there are several budget hotels close by, such as IBIS Charles Street.

Informal meetings will be held in the Frank Adams Seminar Room during the period November 4--6. The primary purpose will be for Manchester PhD students to discuss ongoing research work with their Moscow counterparts.

Programme: Monday 2 November

Programme: Tuesday 3 November
