MATLS: Multivariate Analysis for the Technical and Life Sciences, 10/5 2011

As usual, the venue is DTU building 308. This year, however, there is a construction site close by the venue which blocks the normal access point to the building. This map

indicates how you can enter the building either through 325 (accessible access) or directly from Matematiktorvet.
