Travel and conference venue

Conference venue

The conference will take place at the University of Exeter (Streatham campus). In order to navigate the campus, you can make use of the following map. Here are the key points in campus to know:

  • The main talks will take place in the Peter Chalk Building. Within campus it is fairly easy to find. It is located at the foot of the Physics tower (white building in the picture), which is the highest building in campus. If you need some guidance, you can find here a google maps screenshot showing the route to follow to arrive to the Physics building from the University’s two main entrances. And here another screenshot showing the placement of the Peter Chalk building with respect to the Physics building.

  • The in-campus accomodation is located in Holland Hall. As before, the easiest way to arrive is to search first for the Physics Building. After you arrive at the entrance of the Physics Building, at your left hand side, you will see a small path with a post sign that says “Holland Hall”. Take the path, and turn to the right at the first street you will find at your right hand side. Follow the road until the end of it, and you will see the residence at your right hand side. You can find here a google maps sketch of the way to arrive from the Physics Building.

  • Monday’s training day will take place at the Washington Singer Building. Its placement can be seen here. After you arrive to the building, you must find the room 220 , located in the second floor. In case of doubt, please ask to the people in the front desk.
