The NAM2010 web page at http://www.astro.gla.ac.uk/nam2010/ lists:
• instructions for registration and abstract submission
• travel and accommodation information.
NOTE: Because of the expected high number of delegates (based on previous RAS NAMs), and space/time restrictions, we can at present unfortunately accept only ONE first author/presenting author abstract per registered delegate.
You can sign up for social events at registration. The main social event of the meeting, the conference dinner and ceilidh will take place on Wednesday 14th April, in the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, home to the Fulton Orrery (1832).On the evening of Monday 12th April there will be a Civic welcome reception hosted by the City of Glasgow, in the Glasgow City Chambers on George Square, in Glasgow’s City Centre.The NAM 5-a-side cup football tournament will take place on Tuesday 13th April in the nearby Kelvin Hall Sports Arena.The programme of public events will include three evening talks, and a schools' event on Friday 16th April. There will be a display on Alexander Wilson, and the chance for delegates to view related materials from the University Library’s Special Collection.
There are many small hotels and B+Bs close to the University campus, and cheaper hostel options (Eurohostel/YHA). The NAM web page lists hotels which have agreed to hold rooms for our delegates, until Saturday 27th February. Delegates are required to arrange their own accommodation, and early booking is advised!
The conference venue is linked by bus and subway to the city centre and to the two main train stations in Glasgow: Central (West Coast Main line), and Queen Street (Edinburgh and the East Coast Main line).Transport links from the city centre to Glasgow Airport and Prestwick Airport are fast and frequent.
