Wireless connection

If your institution is part of the Eduroam network, you can connect to Eduroam as usual using your home institution login.  Other attendees should use the CityConnect network.

Welcome Reception

The welcome reception will be held in the Exhibition Centre at the University from 7pm onwards. There will be a selection of Brass Castle ales, soft drinks, canapés and light bites. Please wear your conference badge.


Lunch is provided in the Galleria restaurant on Tuesday and Wednesday, next to the exhibition centre. You will need to wear your conference badge to get access. 

Conference Banquet

The conference banquet will be held at the National Railway Museum in York, from 7pm on Wednesday, finishing at approximately 11pm. Coaches will be provided from the University to the NRM, leaving at 6:40pm from outside the Exhibition Centre. Return coaches back to campus will leave from the NRM at around 11pm. Attendees staying in York city centre may find it more convenient to go directly to the NRM, which is situated just behind York Station. Again, it is important to wear your conference badge to gain access to the banquet.

The University has a helpful page describing all the transportation options, including how to get to and from the city centre.
