VENUE AND TRAVEL
The conference will take place on the university’s Avenue Campus:
https://www.southampton.ac.uk/visitus/campuses/avenue.html

For info about how to get here, please visit:
http://www.southampton.ac.uk/about/visit/getting-to-southampton.page

The most convenient train station to travel to is Southampton Central, from which you can take a taxi to Avenue Campus (10-15 minutes).

Southampton has a small airport, with connections to many other UK cities, and to some on the continent. If you will be travelling by air then a direct flight to Southampton, if available, would probably be your most convenient option.

Alternatively, you could fly to Heathrow, Gatwick or London City. From Heathrow, you can either take the National Express bus all the way to Southampton (http://www.nationalexpress.com/home.aspx), or get a ‘RailAir’ ticket, which involves getting a coach to Woking or Reading station and catching the train from there to Southampton. You can check the schedule and buy tickets on the National Rail website (http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/). From Gatwick or London City, you can take a train all the way to Southampton (c. 2hrs). Again, check the National Rail website (http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/) for timetables and tickets.

ACCOMMODATION
There are plenty of hotels and B&Bs in Southampton, but we recommend booking early. Two decent hotels within walking distance of Avenue Campus are:
