**Travel:**
Durham is easy to get to by car and train, and so is the Department of Mathematics, located on the Science Site. Click here for relevant information.

If you intend to drive to Durham, please inform one of the Durham organisers, who will arrange for a car parking permit for you.

Yorkshire and Durham Geometry Days are jointly organised by the Universities of Durham, Leeds and York, and occur at a frequency of three meetings per academic year. Financial support is provided by the London Mathematical Society through a Scheme 3 grant, currently administered by the University of York. A record of previous meetings may be found here.
