Here is a map of the region showing the location of Tahuna Beach.
The conference will be held the Function Centre of the Holiday Park.


This will be provided using various tourist flats/ units/ cabins belonging to the Holiday Park, and nearby motels. It is hoped to provide this at little or no cost to participants (depending on demand on our finite budget).


Lunch and dinner will be provided at the Function Centre for participants and their families (except on the free Wednesday).

Getting There and Away

Nelson Airport is located only 2 kilometres from the workshop venue. There are flights connecting Nelson directly, to Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
The airport shuttle service charges about $8 for the ride to Tahuna Beach.
By car, Nelson is a pleasant drive of less than 2 hours (110km) from Picton, where there are car ferries connecting with Wellington.

Related Conference: NZMRI 2004

The NZ Mathematics Research Institute will be holding its annual  summer workshop at this same Nelson venue the week before,  3 - 10 January 2004, with an impressive list of speakers. The topic is Computational Algebra, Number Theory and Geometry.
The NZMRI will provide travel support for graduate students to attend its meeting, so there is a strong incentive for students to attend both meetings.
