Location and Cost: The EuroConference will take place at the Newton Institute, and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathroom at Wolfson Court, a hall of residence adjacent to the Institute. The conference package costs £300, which includes registration fee, accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 23 June until breakfast on Saturday 29 June 2002, and lunches and refreshments on the days that lectures take place. Financial support from the EC will be available to young researchers (under 35) from EC Member States and Associated States. Numbers will be strictly limited.

Applications Forms: The deadline for applying has long passed. Due to the popularity of the above EuroConference, space is now extremely limited. Late applications will only be considered in exceptional circumstances. Completed application forms should be sent to Tracey Andrew.
