QUISCO meeting 16 June 2017
I am happy to announce the programme of our forthcoming meeting on Friday 16 June in St Andrews. Many thanks to everybody contributing.
All are welcome, let us come together after the longish break.
For those who haven’t been to our Department yet:
The travel directions and the official parking/access instructions are described here.
We are in room 222 in the Physics Department. If you enter through the main door just follow straight through the glass door, then turn left at the first possibility and the room is on your left, opposite to the printers.
I am really looking forward to seeing you all here.
With best wishes,
