The University of Warwick
is located in the heart of England, 3 miles (5 km) from the centre of Coventry, on the border with Warwickshire. The conference will be held at the Scarman Conference Centre
at the University, with the largest sessions in the brand new Slate building across the street from Scarman.
The early-bird registration fee (until May 15th) for the conference will be £200 (faculty) and £100 (students) and includes lunch. We have negotiated a special hotel rate (£100/night) which includes breakfast each day, plus dinner every evening (except for July 24, the evening of the conference banquet). This special rate is available for conference attendees between July 21-25 or July 22-25, but the number of rooms at this rate is very limited, and this rate is only available if you book the room through the conference registration process. Registration opens March 1st. Please be sure to support the conference by staying at the conference hotel!
The conference banquet will be at Warwick Castle
the evening of July 24th. Reception drinks will be held in the State Rooms, followed by a three-course dinner in the 17th century Great Hall. Tickets to the banquet can be purchased during conference registration.

If you are travelling to London after the conference ends early in the evening on July 25th, the most straightforward route is to take a bus or taxi to Leamington Spa Rail Station, and then a train to London Marylebone. The train journey is about 75 minutes and can be booked in advance to avoid the more expensive walk-up fares: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk
