Social Programme during MGS 2008
Sunday evening: Welcome
Eike and Achim will be at the Etap Hotel from 6pm onwards. At around
7:30 we will make our way to The Green Room for a drink and/or
some food. If you arrive late and you want to join us there, then
follow the directions in the Restaurant Guide to the
Monday evening: Reception
Everyone is invited to a Cheese and Wine reception in the
Computer Science building after the last talk of the day. There will
probably not be enough food to substitute for a proper dinner, nor enough
drink to substitute for good soaking, but it'll give you a head-start
Tuesday evening: City tour
Achim will meet you in the lobby of the Etap Hotel at 7pm. The plan is
to have dinner at Chez Jules and then explore the
Brindley Place and Broad Street areas of the city.
Wednesday lunch: Speakers' lunch
There will be a lunch for the speakers only on Wednesday
lunchtime. Details will be announced separately.
Thursday evening: Conference dinner
The conference dinner is for everyone and the cost for this was
included in your registration fee. It will take place in a restaurant
called Pasta di Piazza which is located in 11 Brook
Street, just off St Paul's Square, in the historic
Jewelry Quarter. If the weather is pleasant enough, we can walk
together from the Etap Hotel, leaving at 6:30. Otherwise, or if it's
too far for you (about 1.5miles) then you could share a taxi. Arrival
at the restaurant is scheduled for 7pm.
A certain amount of wine will be available at the table but everything
beyond that has to be paid for in cash.
