Travel and Accommodation
From the airport, a convenient and relatively inexpensive way to reach your hotel or the conference venue is by taxi (about $25–30).
By train (take the Airport and East Hills line to Redfern Station) is somewhat cheaper (currently $12.60); but if you arrive on Monday morning during peak period and intend to go straight to the conference venue, it might be faster: The conference venue is about 15–20 minutes on foot from Redfern Station (there is no bus stand or taxi stand there).
The venue of the conference talks within the University of Sydney will be given to the registered participants. It will be near the School of Mathematics and Statistics, which is located in the Carslaw Building (L19 on the Campus Map), very close to the City Road entrance.
