The venue is the prestigious Ron Cooke hub on the university campus which is not far from the wonderful historical city of York. The excellent, modern facilities will provide the environment for technical sessions, networking reception, poster sessions and breaks.

The best way to travel to the campus from the centre of York is by the frequent bus service, see below. Car parking in the centre and at the campus is usually very limited.

The Grand Conference Dinner will be held at the famous National Railway Museum , a truly memorable venue.

The beautiful city of York and its university


York is an historic walled city in North Yorkshire. With its historic minster, castle, Viking museum and historic ambience it is a favourite spot for millions of visitors each year. The university plays a large part in York's vibrant life. The Grand Conference Dinner in the National Railway Museum (drinks in the Great Hall with the famous engines and dinner in the Station Hall) will be a memorable experience. The conference ends at noon on the Friday allowing delegates time for travel home or the chance to explore the many delights of York on their own.
