There are a number of restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the
university; however, given any sizable number of conference participants,
this may lead to substantive overcrowding and consequent delays. For this
reason, the organisers will arrange for a caterer to provide two lunches on
the university premises. Since it is vital that we should know in advance
how many lunches to order, you must book your lunch in advance by sending
in the coupon below. For the lunches, no advance payment is required.
