SPARS 2015

Signal Processing with Adaptive Sparse Structured Representations

July 6-9, 2015, Cambridge, UK.

Local Information


All the talks will happen at Robinson College in the Auditorium. Coffee breaks and lunches will be served in the main dining hall of the College or in the Garden restaurant.

Robinson College is located at Grange Road in Cambridge, and is on the Uni-4 bus route, but, when arriving by train, it is necessary to get another bus from the railway station to the central bus station first. It is easiest to get a taxi direct from Cambridge railway station to Robinson College.

Getting to Cambridge

Cambridge is only 60 miles (100 km) north from central London. There are frequent (two per hour) direct train connections between London Kings Cross station and Cambridge station, and the trip takes 50 to 55 minutes. There are also train services once per hour direct from London Stansted airport to Cambridge - journey time about 40 minutes.

There are train and bus services from all the other London airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and City) but journey times can be quite a lot longer than from Stansted. Trains are usually quicker than buses, but will involve one or more connections.
