The 3rd International Workshop on Rydberg Excitons in Semiconductors will be held in Durham in the UK on Monday 15th – Tuesday 16th July 2019. Durham is an ancient city in North East England boasting a stunning 11th century Norman cathedral and castle in a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. Durham has been a place of learning for more than 700 years and Durham University is now a World Top 100 university in the QS World University Rankings 2019.

The sessions will take place in lecture room PH30 in the main Physics Department Rochester Building (12 on the map). Posters will be displayed in the Chemistry Department Scarborough Cafe (15 on the map).

Brooks House university accommodation (49 on the map) is a short walk from the science site. It can be a little hard to find when you arrive. If you take a taxi but the driver doesn’t know where it is, ask for Old Elvet and Green Lane. At the junction of Old Elvet and Green Lane, take the small gated driveway to the right of the Durham Justice Centre. Walk 150 metres down the driveway and enter Brooks House via the door in the left-hand corner of the courtyard. A porter will be present to issue room keys throughout the day and night. However, if the porter on duty is away from the lodge, please call +44 191 334 3470 and your call will be redirected to their mobile phone.

For those not staying in Brooks House, there are a number of hotels in town, including Travel Lodge (£), Premier Inn (£), Radisson Blu (££), Hotel Indigo (££) and Marriott Royal County (££).

Meals and refreshments:
Lunch, dinner and refreshments will be provided on meeting days.  Those staying in Brooks House will be provided with a grab-&-go breakfast in Brooks House at 08:00 each day. There is a cafeteria on the Science Site should delegates wish to supplement the breakfast provided in Brooks House.
Coffee, lunches and the poster session dinner on the 15th will be served in the Scarborough Cafe (15 on the map). The conference dinner on the 16th will be served in Hatfield College Dining Hall (20 on the map).

An interactive map of the whole university can be found here.
