WES2016 will be held at the University Park campus of the University of Nottingham. This 120 hectare (300 acre) site is one of the largest and most attractive in the UK. Set in extensive greenery and around a lake, the campus includes halls of residence, teaching facilities and period properties for our conference dinner.
Our meeting will be held in the Engineering & Sciences Learning Centre, a modern facility that has won architectural awards. Inside, our meeting room and space for tea & coffee breaks will open onto a large, full-height atrium. Audio visual facilities are excellent.
Accommodation will be in student accommodation in Lenton & Worsley Hall of Residence. These will be either single study bedrooms or 2-bedroom units with one bedroom closed off. All have private shower & WC. A dining hall, bar and lounge space are also available in the hall. There is also a new hotel on-campus if you prefer, subject to availability.
Our conference dinner will be in the Trent Building - a period building overlooking the lake. We will eat in the panelled Council Room and take pre-dinner drinks in the comfortable Council Room foyer.
Nottingham is conveniently situated in the East Midlands of England.
The University Park campus is just 4 miles from Junction 25 of the M1 motorway.
There are direct trains from London’s St Pancras station to Nottingham. From outside the station there is a tram service to the university, or taxis are available. Alternatively, you can travel to Beeston Station where buses and taxis are available.
East Midlands airport is just 13 miles from the University and handles flights from within the UK and Europe. Again there are bus and taxi options to get to the campus, leaving from outside the terminal building.
