The welcome reception for SRM Science 2015 will be held in the Fitzwilliam Museum from 6pm - 7.30pm on Thursday, March 12. This event is included in the conference registration fee.

Fitzwilliam 2 The Fitzwilliam Museum is home to Cambridge’s premier art collection, and houses thousands of historical artefacts. Few museums in the world contain on a single site collections of such variety and depth. Writing in his Foreword to the catalogue of the exhibition for Treasures from the Fitzwilliam which toured the United States in 1989-90, the then Director of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, wrote that "like the British Museum, the Fitzwilliam addresses the history of culture in terms of the visual forms it has assumed, but it does so from the highly selective point of view of the collector connoisseur. Works of art have been taken into the collection not only for the historical information they reveal, but for their beauty, excellent quality, and rarity... It is a widely held opinion that the Fitzwilliam is the finest small museum in Europe".

The conference dinner for SRM Science 2015 will be held in Trinity College at 7pm on Saturday, March 14. Tickets for attendees and their guests can be purchased when completing the conference registration.

Trinity was founded by Henry VIII in 1546, when he combined two existing colleges (King's Hall and Michaelhouse) and seven hostels (Catherine’s, Garratt, Gregory’s, Ovyng’s, Physwick, St Margaret's, and Tyler’s). Since then Trinity has flourished and grown, and is now a home to around 600 undergraduates, 300 graduates, and over 180 Fellows.

Princes, spies, poets and prime-ministers have all been taught here, and members of the College go on to a very wide range of professions and careers after taking degrees in all the subjects the University offers.

College life is lively and diverse, with students coming here from all over the world as well as from all kinds of different schools in the United Kingdom.

Trinity has an outstanding academic record and famous graduates include Isaac Newton, James Clerk Maxwell, J.J. Thomson and Ernest Rutherford.
