Practical Details: 

Bristol is easily accessible by train from within the UK, and the city center and University are a relatively short walk from Temple Meads Station. There is a bus service connecting Bristol airport to the city center (approx. 30 minutes). It is also possible to fly to Heathrow, and then take either a train or the National Express coach service to Bristol; the journey from Heathrow is approximately 2--2.5 hours with either option.

Local expenses of participants will be covered. There is a limited amount of travel support available as well, but we hope most participants will be able to cover their own travel expenses. Please contact the organizer for more information.
