With this Symposium, we are going to celebrate the Honorary Degree that the University of York will confer on Witek Nazarewicz. The award ceremony will take place on 17 July at 10am, and the Symposium will thus start with a lunch on that day and finish with a lunch on 20 July. On Friday 19 July we will have the Symposium dinner.
The award ceremony will be a part of the University of York Graduation Day during which students graduating in 2019 will be presented with their diploma. This will a big day for the University, with parents and families participating in the event. You are, of course, warmly invited to participate in the celebrations. We have been offered 20 tickets to the auditorium of the Grand Hall and an unlimited access to the lobby, where the ceremony will be broadcast on large outdoor screens. If you would like to have the ticket to the auditorium - please let the organizer know; we will reserve them for you on the first-come-first-served basis.
The event will be held at the King’s Manor in York city centre where there are many nearby hotels and bed and breakfasts which you can book for yourself. York is a historic, tourist centre in the UK and well recommended for those wish to stay longer and look around York.
This event is intended to start at 09:00 on 17 July, and finish with a lunch on the 20 July. York is easily reached by train from nearby airports such as Manchester, Leeds, Doncaster and Newcastle. The London airports take 3 hours or more to reach - see travelling to York. For those coming from Paris or Brussels, the Eurostar train via London is a comfortable and relatively quick option.
