EuroMUG 2002

24-26 September 2002
Cambridge, England

The 2002 Daylight European User Group Meeting will be held September 24-26 in Cambridge, England.

Our two-day format includes both presentations from Daylight staff and Daylight users. Users will present talks on the work they are doing utilizing Daylight software. These presentations offer the opportunity to share and learn on a peer-to-peer level with other Daylight users. Daylight staff will present on new developments and directions for Daylight. All individuals interested in Daylight, regardless of their level of experience or familiarity with our software, are invited to attend.

In addition to our usual presentations, we will be holding a complimentary "Introduction to Daylight" training session on Tuesday September 24th at the Unilever Cambridge Centre for Molecular Informatics. If you are interested in this additional session please register early and indicate your wish to attend on the registration form.

The meeting will take place at the University Arms Hotel, Regent Street, Cambridge. The hotel is holding a limited number of rooms for delegates until August 23, so please make your reservations directly with the hotel as soon as possible.

Cambridge is a small city with narrow cobbled streets more suited to carriages than cars; parking space is at a premium, and many roads are now pedestrianised. There is limited parking at the hotel, public car parking is available at Queen Anne Terrace Car Park next to the Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre, across Parker's Piece. Delegates may wish to use public transport. The railway station is a within walking distance, or a short taxi ride. Coaches from all the London airports terminate close by, at Drummer Street Bus Station.
