Some initial top-line information about the meeting to help with your planning.
Please note that details may change as planning progresses [although core times/dates/venues are final]
– contact us if you have any specific questions.
The theme this year is: Promoting a culture of learning
In early April we will be issuing a Call for Abstracts both for the poster/oral presentations, and for a number of breakout sessions.
We will be approaching education and service providers for sponsorship, and industry for grant support – or drop us a line earlier if you need information earlier in the year. Exhibition spaces will also be available.
Registration will open in April with an Early Bird rate, make sure you are subscribed to the mailing list to be kept informed (see top right hand column of home page).

The meeting venue is in the north east corner of the University of Manchester campus – a 2 minute walk from the taxi rank/lower ground entrance of Manchester Piccadilly train station – which is a 22 minute train ride from Manchester Airport and 2 hours 9 minutes from London Euston. Liverpool is just under an hour away.
The nearest hotels are the MacDonald Manchester Hotel and Motel One Manchester-Piccadilly, but there are many more in the area and the larger international chain hotels about a 10/15 minute walk away – it seems like everything in Manchester is just a 15 minute walk away!
If you are staying in town after the meeting, we would expect that the renowned Manchester Christmas Markets will be opening on the evening of Friday 8th November. There are several top-flight football teams in the area, and we will post information about any possible home fixtures of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Everton taking place on Saturday once the details are announced in July. Please don’t ask us yet as we really do not know any further information until the fixtures are published! We will also keep an eye on the rugby fixtures, concerts, gigs, theatre and other Manchester-based things to do after the meeting.
