Programme
 
Note that the clocks go forward one hour for summer time during the night in the middle of the PSSL.
This means that if you forget, you will miss the first talks on Sunday morning... 

Local maps with all relevant places marked will be available at the Hotel Mirabeau when you check in.

Friday 23rd March

 7pm: suggested meeting place for anyone who's arrived by then - Taverna MassÚna, 25 rue MassÚna



* Note that it's a bit hard to make large group bookings in Nice so this
is an informal meeting suggestion. 7pm is quite early for dinner here, so it
shouldn't be a problem, though we may end up at several smaller tables
rather than one large one. I will tell them we are a group of mathematicians,
in case you need to ask where we are!  (We might be upstairs.)  If you can't
arrive until later, do come and look for us.

Saturday 24th March


9.00-9.15: registration - please bring 20 Euros in cash for dinner payment, if relevant (not 25 as previously announced)
 
9.15-12.15: talks

12.15: lunch served in Laboratoire J.A. DieudonnÚ

14.45-17.45: talks

Information about facilities

Lecture room
Talks will take place in the main lecture room of the Laboratoire.  There is a vast amount of blackboard space, but the blackboards are a bit curious: they slide sideways.  There will also be an overhead projector and a data projector.

Internet access
Unfortunately the department is very short of computers at the moment so there are no computer rooms. Furthermore, the campus is not wirelessed. There are a couple of internet cafes on Rue Pertinax.




Information about reimbursement

If you are being reimbursed, please bring with you the following information to satisfy the bureacratic requirements.  You should make sure to present these on Saturday to Isabelle de Angelis, who will be taking care of registration and administrative matters all day.

- your home address
- your university address
- your plane ticket (electronic is fine) and boarding passes
- your hotel bill (thus you'll need to get this up front, rather than when you check out - or post it to us later)
- an "attestation" from your university that they're not paying you for this trip
(this can be an email from your department secretary to Isabelle De Angelis <Isabelle.DE_ANGELIS {at} unice.fr>)

and a lot of bank details:
- name and postal address
- account number
- swift/BIC code
- IBAN number
