MOPNET: EPSRC Matrix and Operator Pencil Network
Meeting 0: Monday March 30th to Tuesday March 31st
Meeting 0 is funded by Cardiff School of Mathematics and the Welsh Institute of Mathematical and Computational Sciences and will start at 14:00 on Monday 30th March. The scientific programme will end at lunchtime on Tuesday 31st March. There will then be a meeting of the Scientific Committee to discuss the arrangements of future workshops, and an informal touristic excursion for those interested.
Registration is free for Meeting 0. Please send us an email with the subject 'MOPNET 0' by Friday 13th of March to register. Please include your name and affiliation in the email body.
For future meetings we shall also be able to fund travel and subsistence costs for network members.

The following have agreed to speak:
- E. Brian Davies
- Seamus Garvey
- Nick Higham
- Peter Lancaster
- John McWhirter
- Eric Séré
- Alastair Spence
Invited speakers will be booked into one of the following hotels:
- Hilton, 1 Kingsway, Cardiff CF10 3HH, tel: 029 2064 6300, web: www.hilton.com
- Parc Hotel, Park Place, Cardiff, CF10 3UD, tel: 0871 376 9011, email: email@example.com
There are many other hotels online, including a number of Bed and Breakfast guesthouses in Cathedral Road, approximately 30 minutes' walk from the School. Recent visitors have indicated a preference for this B+B. It is worth booking early as there will be a FIFA World Cup qualifying match on April 1st and the hotels may fill up early.
Travelhere for travel directions. The School of Mathematics is at 21-23 Senghennydd Road and is 200m from Cathays railway station. It takes 20-25 minutes to walk to the School from Cardiff Central railway station.
In the Google Map, Senghennydd Road (the street where the Mathematics Building is located) is mis-named as 'Woodville Road'.
