Registration and Financial Support
Registration is now open; please register by completing the form below:

We have some funds to support accommodation and/or travel expenses for young participants; such funding will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to research students and those without access to other sources of funding. Persons wishing to apply for such funding should do so through the registration form; the deadline for applying for support is 31st January 2019.

Accommodation for invited speakers and young participants being supported by the conference will be arranged by the conference organisers. For all other participants, here are a few local accommodation options:
The closest rail station to the university is Loughborough; there are frequent trains to/from London St Pancras, Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, and Sheffield. The station is about 30 minutes walk from the university; there is also a bus (the Sprint bus) that runs from the station to the university every 10 minutes, throughout the day.

For any international visitors arriving by air, the closest airports are East Midlands Airport and London Luton Airport, both of which have a direct train connection to Loughborough. Beyond that, most of the London airports are fairly easy to reach, by rail via London.
