Contributions towards costs

If a New Zealand based participant is accompanied by a non-participating partner (or by family), we will ask for a contribution towards costs.

We also ask that participants who have research grants make additional contributions towards costs. We can provide GST receipts or invoices for this purpose.

Alternatively, participants may wish to make tax-deductible donations to the NZMRI, in support of its mission of enhancing mathematical research in New Zealand and to enable it to continue running these sorts of meetings in the future.

Support for NZ-based students: Accommodation and meals are normally provided free to all NZ-based student participants.

Participants based outside of New Zealand: If you are in this category and need information on costs of accommodation and catering, please contact us directly.

Getting There and Away

Nelson Airport is located only 2 kilometres from the workshop venue.

There are flights connecting Nelson directly, to Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. The airport shuttle service charges about $15 for the ride to Tahuna Beach.

By car, Nelson is a pleasant drive of less than 2 hours (110km) from Picton, where there are car and passenger ferries connecting with Wellington.
