The academic programme will be held on the Strand Campus, a central London location on the banks of the River Thames, close to many of the places that will be familiar to visitors as well as to those interested in history, literature, theatre, art and architecture, with the British Library a short walk away.
King’s College London
Registration and all sessions will take place in the Main Building, designed by Sir Robert Smirke in 1828 (but not at all the same kind of building as the British Museum, for which he is better known!). The rooms to be used in the conference have been recently refurbished, and have state-of-the- art presentation facilities.
The main (old) Foyer, with its statues of Sappho and Socrates, will be used for registration and for the information and help desks throughout the conference. The immediately adjacent Great Hall is where the posters and demonstrations will be set up, and where tea & coffee will be served. Coffee/tea/fruit juice and biscuits/buns/fruit will be provided mid-morning and mid-afternoon each day. Coffee and croissants will be provided each morning.
There are seminar rooms very close to the Great Hall which will be used as poster overflow rooms if necessary.
Plenary lectures and sessions will take place in the newly refurbished Edmond J. Safra Lecture Theatre, which seats 250.
Parallel sessions will be accommodated in rooms immediately above the Great Hall and in the adjacent corridors, each seating between 50 and 90. The layout of the Safra Lecture Theatre make it a satisfactory venue for parallel as well as plenary sessions.
Special sessions will take place in the new Anatomy Museum, opened in October 2009. It is situated alongside the Old Anatomy Theatre, and houses an Access Grid node; it has also been designed as a performance space.
