Working Groups

We can probably host 3 to 4 working group sessions each day. If you want to run a working group add yourself along with a topic to the table below. The working group sessions are intended for groups of people to collaborate or hack on a specific topic and attendees are expected to arrive prepared, which also means that the working group chair(s) should provide some material upfront. Feel free to create a sub-page detailing your session. Each working group chair is expected to present the results of the group on Friday afternoon. We will add scheduling and room information later.

Logistics

Most attendees will arrive in Cambridge on Monday 27 August or Tuesday 28 August, depending on their tolerance for jet lag and desire to see sights before the summit begins. Most attendees will probably depart Sunday 2 September.

Cambridge, UK is located approximately 45 minutes North of London by train, with easy access by bus or train to St. Pancras International - Eurostar (45m rail), London Stansted Airport (40m rail), London Heathrow Airport (LHR - 2h rail), London Gatwick Airport (LGW - 2h rail), Manchester Airport (MIA - 4h rail), London Luton Airport (1h25m bus). European attendees may consider Eurostar or Stansted Airport preferred routes due to short transit time to Cambridge and lower prices. Visitors from the US or elsewhere will likely need to travel into one of London's major international airports, such as Heathrow or Gatwick. With the exception of Luton Airport, rail offers a more convenient but more expensive route to Cambridge than bus.

Please note: during the summer, rail service in and out of Cambridge is often significantly disrupted on Sundays due to rail works on the track between London Kings Cross and Camridge. Attendees are encouraged to avoid the need to travel by rail on Sundays.

Lodging @ Sidney Sussex

The Front door is located on Sidney Street about 1/2 way between Jesus Lane & Sussex Street and looks like this:

Bike Hire and Collection

We will make a group booking of bicycles. This will be £20 for the week. Getting around Cambridge on a bicycle is very easy - they haven't invented hills yet.

You will need to collect your bike from Station Cycles in the Grand Arcade (please see the map). Note that Station Cycles is on Corn Exchange Street around the back of the Grand Arcade, it can not be accessed from inside the shopping centre. You will also need to return your bike to Station Cycles before you leave Cambridge.

Station Cycles has a list of names of people who have booked bikes. Please make sure that you have something with you that can prove that you are one of these people.

There is some space on the college campus for parking, but possibly not enough for everyone. If you can't find space, the Park Street Cycle Park (marked on the map) has (covered) space for 200 bicycles and is about two minutes walk from the college.

Pub on Arrival

We have booked space in The Tivoli (also on the map) from about 6pm on Tuesday. If you aren't attending the DocSummit, then feel free to go straight to the pub.

Network access

See email for details on WGB, eduroam, Lapwing. See http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/network/rules for University network access rules (AUP). Plan on bringing an Ethernet cable for possible wired access in your room (depending on accommodation).

GavinAtkinson has brought a small number of GiffGaff GSM SIM cards, which will give unlimited data and UK SMS for a £10 deposit, and should be usable in any unlocked GSM smart phone. Catch him if you want one.

Power

The UK uses British Standard 1363 fused plugs, see e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BS_1363, and is running at 230V/50Hz. Please bring a good, fused adapter, a UK power cable, .. for your digital equipment.

Breakfast

Available at your hotel or residence.

Dinner places

Dinners are not included in the registration or room fees. Cambridge is well-equipped with pubs and restaurants catering to a variety of tastes and budgets. We have organized the following:
