David Eyers has now sorted out lap-top connectivity in delegate rooms
with the help of the computer officers at King's College.
Network connection from delegate rooms
All conference delegates accommodated at King's College will have access
to a standard RJ45 network socket in their rooms, but users will need to
provide their own Ethernet cards and network cabling. An IP address
allocation sheet and documentation from the College Computer Officers
describing how to configure many operating systems for the King's and
Cambridge network environment will be available at the time of conference
registration. Any reasonable use of the College Internet facilities will
be free of charge, but please note that the UK academic community is now
charged for transatlantic bandwidth and usage is monitored at the IP
In addition, for delegates not bringing their own computers, the College
provides a number of public-access text-based secure shell terminals.
Delegates can also use workstations in the Turing Room (a shared computer
area, Alan Turing lived and worked in the College), but the room is kept
locked and access will be possible at certain times only.
Emergency e-mail and limited printing facilities can be arranged at any time.
The College web site has a section describing computing
Please note that wireless networking will not be supported, and it will
not be possible to allow delegates to plug their laptops into the network
except in their own rooms. There is an internet connection in the main
conference room, but this is only for use by speakers in an emergency, for
example to download a talk from another site when all else fails.
