[visionlist] Tenth AVA Xmas Meeting: Programme

Tim Meese t.s.meese at aston.ac.uk
Tue Dec 6 16:02:41 GMT 2005

Dear all - This is our biggest Christmas meeting 
to date, which is great news, but it does mean 
that it will put pressure on the registration 
process and the catering. It will help us 
enormously if you would: (i) pay before you 
arrive (preferably before Thursday 15th Dec) 
using paypal (go to the ava web site: 
www.theAVA.net) and (ii) register with us (if you 
have not done so) by dropping an e-mail either to 
Claire <cashmanc at email.aston.ac.uk> OR to me 
<t.s.meese at aston.ac.uk>.

Directions to the meeting can be found at the end of the programme.

We look forward to seeing you on the 19th.

Tim Meese

Information on how to get to Aston University can 
be found at: http://www.aston.ac.uk/contact/
Once at the University's main building enter the 
red sky lift in the reception area and go to the 
sixth floor. Exit the lift and turn right through 
the double doors. Walk to the end of the wide 
corridor (part of the Aston Business School) and 
turn left at the stairs. Walk through two more 
sets of double doors and you will find the 
reception desk in Cafe Lago.

There is some car parking space on the campus. 
You should inform security that you are attending 
the AVA Christmas meeting at the intercom by the 
campus entrance barrier.

Aston University is about a 15 minute walk from 
Birmingham New Street train station. (See site 
map above for directions).

A list of local hotels can be provided by us on request.
