9-10 JULY, 2001

The International Working Group on Value Theory invites you to attend its
2nd Summer Symposium at Greenwich (London, UK).  The symposium will be held
on 9-10 July, 2001 (Monday-Tuesday), 9:30 am - 5:30 pm, at the Maritime
Campus of the University of Greenwich.

As was the case last year, the symposium immediately follows the conference
of the Association for Heterodox Economics Conference.
If you already plan to be in London for that, please drop in.

The symposium will take the form of four 3-hour sessions.
Presentations will provide an introduction for the nonspecialist, and there
will be extensive time for questions, debate, audience participation and
engagement -- as well as relaxed, convivial meals and coffee breaks.

Room A165, Queen Anne Court, Maritime Campus, University of Greenwich

Greenwich is now easy to get to (30-40 minutes from central London), with
many attractions including not least the Museum of Time, the park, the
market, the meridian and observatory, a beautiful stretch of river with
plenty of restaurants and pubs and, if you must, the now untenanted
Millennium Dome.

Papers are now available on the IWGVT's website
(www.greenwich.ac.uk/~fa03/iwgvt) If you'd like to be a discussant for any
of the papers please tell us.  Anything that you'd like to circulate can
also be placed on the website.  The website also provides a map and
directions to the Maritime Campus.
If you plan to attend, please drop me a line; I can then send you papers as
they come in, and also we can make restaurant bookings for the evening

There will be a five pound fee (waived for low-wage participants) to cover
our costs, including (we hope) coffee.

How to get there

The Maritime campus is five minutes walk from central Greenwich.
It is the old Royal Naval College, opposite the Maritime Museum. The
entrance closest to Queen Anne Court is in Park Row, which runs between
Romney Road (the main
road heading East out of Greenwich) and the river.


Connex South-East (overground commuter railway) trains call at Greenwich
station or at Maze Hill station (one stop further, but slightly closer),
leaving every 15-20 minutes from Charing Cross, Waterloo East and London
Bridge, and in peak hours from Cannon Street. They take about 20 minutes.

DLR (Docklands Light Railway) trains stop at Greenwich and at Cutty Sark
(also slightly closer).

>From North Greenwich Jubilee Line Underground station you can take any
Greenwich-bound bus (journey time about 5 minutes, frequency every 5

The room is in the Queen Anne Court, one of four buildings inside the main
campus, which is on your right as you enter from Park Row. The Site Map,
available on the website, may help.

Best wishes

Andrew Kliman
