Conference Location

The conference will take place at The Grand Hotel, Brighton, United Kingdom, from October 23rd to 26th, 2005.

Brighton is on the south coast of England.  Often referred to as 'London by the sea' it is a Regency period town with charm, style and eccentricity, offering something for everyone from the Royal Pavilion, built by Prince Regent in 1822 to the labyrinth of alleyways packed with antique shops known as the 'Lanes'.

Getting there

Brighton is easily accessible from all the London airports with bus, rail and road connections  (the nearest airports, Heathrow and Gatwick serve both inter-continental and European flights; the more distant Luton, Stansted and City airports serve European flights). 

There are frequent train and bus services from central London to Brighton including from London Waterloo with connections to the Eurostar train services to continental Europe. 

There are good motorway links to Brighton from London and other UK destinations via the M25, M23 and A23.  The Eurotunnel service and cross-channel ferry services can be used to drive to the UK from continental Europe.
