27th Annual Northern Universities Meeting on
Chemical Physics (ANUMOCP XXVII)
Tuesday, 4th July 2017
ANUMOCP is informal meeting of researchers from the Midlands, Scotland and the North of England (well, anywhere where you could get to Sheffield for a day-meeting), where young researchers can talk about their work in a friendly environment, and is sponsored by the Molecular Physics Group of the Institute of Physics and the Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group of the RSC. There is no formal registration cost although a charge of £10 per person will be made to cover the cost of lunch and refreshments.

VENUE & TIMES
The conference will take place in Lecture Theatre 1 of the Dainton Building, University of Sheffield - See here for Travel Details. The programme will run between 10:30 and 17:00 with coffee/registration from 10:00.
ACCOMMODATION AND CATERING
The registration fee includes coffee and tea and lunch. Overnight accommodation is available at a number of hotels and guest houses within 15 minutes walk of the Dainton Building. We will be happy to provide a list of appropriate places with approximate prices, but participants who need overnight accommodation either before or after the meeting are asked to make their own arrangements in good time.
Participants arriving by train at Sheffield Midland Station should catch the tram from the rear of the station. Trams heading for Malin Bridge (blue route) run via the University approximately every 10 minutes. For the return journey take the tram travelling to Halfway (blue route).
Parking in the University area can be difficult, so if you are planning to travel by car, we recommend that you use the Park & Ride facilities. Further details may be found at: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/visitors/mapsandtravel/parkandride We regret that no permits can be issued for University car parks.
