The meeting will take place in the Herschel Building, the home of the School of Mathematics & Statistics of Newcastle University. The Herschel Building is opposite the Haymarket Metro station, in Newcastle City Centre. The Metro system connects directly to the Airport (Newcastle International: NCL), and to the Central (Train) Station.
Details about getting to Newcastle and reaching the University can be found on the School and University travel pages. A variety of University maps are also available. (Perhaps most useful is the Campus map; the Herschel Building is Building 17 on page 2 of this map.)
Other useful resources are available on the pages of the Newcastle Gateshead Initiative. These include additional Travel and Map pages; and their Getting around page is a good introduction to the city's public transport options.
A large variety of accommodation is available in Newcastle. Most of the options listed below have been used by University visitors before. For some of these options, standard University rates are available. (The University rates listed are for a single room, but other rooms are available. To ensure the use of these rates, it's simplest to go via our Office Staff; so please email any booking requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll arrange the booking.)
