    Dear All

    Here is the timetable for this year's AVA Christmas meeting at Surrey.
    Abstracts will be made available on the web this week

    Information on how to get to Guildford (and the University campus)
    is available on the University website

    If you are travelling by car you will need a parking permit which must
    be displayed to avoid the 6 daily charge (we will send these by post upon
    application). The conference is being held in the 'Teaching block' (no 6 on
    Campus map

    Registration will be on the day. Please could you let us know
    in advance if you intend to come, in order to arrange catering etc.
    Registration fees are as follows:

    AVA Members

    Regular 17
    Student 10

    AVA non-members

    Regular 25
    Student 15

    (AVA membership (18 regular, 9 student for one year) is available on the day)
