Down Under the Hard Sphere

A Symposium in Honour of Robin J. Speedy

Wellington, New Zealand

Friday July 9th, 2010



Come and join us in celebrating all things liquid in a one day symposium dedicated to Robin Speedy. This informal meeting will be held on July 9th, in Wellington, New Zealand and will give us a great opportunity to talk about everything from water, to glasses, to statistical geometry. There will be a number of short talks and plenty of time to discuss problems over coffee and food.


The meeting will be held at Rutherford House, which is located on the Pipitea Campus of Victoria University of Wellington, in the downtown heart of the city and near the water front.
