Travel and Accommodation




Belfast can be easily reached by land, sea and air. For an overview see here (courtesy Belfast Visitor Centre).

Check which flights take you to the George Best City Airport (BHD) and the International Airport (BFS).

Alternatively you can fly to Dublin Airport (DUB) from which you can reach Belfast with two direct bus lines, Aircoach and Translink; this takes about two hours.

There are frequent trains from Dublin Connolly Station to Belfast Central Station.

If you prefer the boat, take the Stena Line from Liverpool or Cairnryan.



  We reserved hotel rooms at a special rate between 2 and 7 September; to book these go here (courtesy Belfast Visitor Centre). All hotels are close to the University. Note that this offer will expire on 6 August!  
  There are a number of B&B's in the vicinity; for a list of those see here (you will have to make the reservation by yourself).  
  A fairly comprehensive accommodation list can be found here.  

And a booking service I found very useful and reliable in the past is this one.

Important! If you are a student participant and expect funding from us, please contact me first before making any accommodation booking.



  The meeting will take place at Queen's University Belfast; for a map of the campus see here.    
All lectures will be held in the large lecture theatre 0G.005 on the ground floor of the David Bates Building in the School of Mathematics and Physics.
The lecture theatre is equipped with a set of large blackboards as well as a data projector and a connected PC.
