This is the final announcement for the ATLAS Physics
Workshop to be held:
June 16-18 at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby (Vancouver)
Information on the conference can be found !
Most of this email applies to those of you who will attend
in person, but we wanted to inform everyone that the talks
will be available by videoconference for those who are
interested. Details on how to connect will appear on the
workshop website as soon as they are available.
The following information will be useful for those
attending in person.
1) You will find attached a of the campus that has
sites relevant to the workshop labelled.
2) Those of you staying at SFU should have received arrival
instructions directly from the housing office. This is
as simple as going to the location labelled on the map.
However, I remind you that if you are arriving after
5:00PM, you should STOP at the security office and have
them contact the housing person on call.
Many of you will be arriving on Sunday and
you should be aware that because it is summer, most
food outlets and stores on campus have limited hours;
this is even more restricted on the weekend.
Renaissance Coffee in the cornerstone building will
be open until 9:00PM and you should be able to get
soups, sandwiches and muffins, etc. there.
Marketplace, also in the cornerstone building, is
open on weekends, but only until 5:00PM. If you are
arriving in the evening, you might want to eat before
you "come up the mountain" as the locals say.
Another possibility for dinner is Horizons restaurant,
which is off campus, but within walking distance of the
residences. There is a crude but it does not show the path
off of W Campus Rd if you are walking. Horizons is a
very nice restaurant with a fabulous view, but it is
4) Wireless internet will be available at the workshop
venue, but it does not reach to the residences. The rooms
are equipped with hardwire internet, but you must bring
your own wire.
5) For those staying at the hotel, I have attached two maps
of the area around the hotel, and between the hotel and
SFU. You can also get arrival info from the hotel web
6) Registration for the conference will be outside Images
Theater starting at 8:15 on Monday morning. We will
endeavour to have signs up, but it should be relatively
easy to navigate with the .
7) One of our students has on how to use public transit from the airport, and from
the hotel to SFU. However, I recommend you take a taxi
from the airport, as transit uses a circuitous route
that will take about 1.5 hours! It is 30 minutes by car.
8) Finally, visitor parking is indicated on the . Those
staying at the residences should ask there about parking.
There is a parking lot that you can use if you are a guest.
I think that's all you need to know to get to SFU safely.
I wish you a good trip!
P.S. While I am thinking of details, I should warn you
that when you leave Vancouver, you will have to clear
US customs at the airport. You should therefore give
yourself some extra time.
