The conference will be held on the Peel Park Campus of the University of Salford, Manchester. The City of Salford adjoins central Manchester and is famous as the home of the artist L. S. Lowry, the Imperial War Museum North, 16th Century Ordsall Hall and MediaCityUK at Salford Quays. Manchester itself is one of Britain's most dynamic cities, famous for its music culture, football teams, universities and exciting nightlife. The city boasts world-class galleries and museums, excellent shopping opportunities, and restaurants, pubs and bars to suit every taste.



Accommodation will be available in the very centre of Manchester, close to Manchester Oxford Road station, a six-minute train ride (or 30-minute walk) from the University of Salford campus. Further details will be provided in the second circular.
