Workshop platform

The workshop on 20-22 April will run on the Sococo platform, with plenary presentations on Zoom. The Sococo platform is a virtual environment facilitating interactions between all participants, as well as seamless transfers to the presentations on Zoom, via integrated Zoom links.

We will provide instructions and offer individual training to each speaker and delegate in advance of the meeting. The aim is to recreate online the formal and informal interactions that we are used to in the real-world.


Follow-up meeting venue

The venue for the in-person follow up meeting on 20th September 2021 is Jesus College. It is one of the older colleges in Cambridge and regularly hosts meetings of this size and nature in its pleasant and congenial setting. The workshop will be held in West Court, which opened in 2017 with state-of-the art conference facilities in the Frankopan Hall.

Accommodation

The facilities at this 15th Century college have been refurbished extensively recently, so that all accommodation is en-suite. Delegates requiring partner accompaniment or other caring needs (e.g. young children) should contact us directly via the Contact form.

Attendance is by invitation only. Accommodation will be available for the nights of the 19th and 20th September. Delegates requiring longer stays (e.g. those with caring needs, travelling long distances) should contact the organisers to make arrangements.

A wide range of dietary needs can be accommodated, given notice.

Travel

Cambridge can be reached readily by major roads, and by regular coach and train services from London and the Midlands.

London’s Stansted airport is 40 minutes away by coach or train.

Regular coach services also service London’s Luton, Gatwick and Heathrow airports. The Thameslink service provides a direct link to Gatwick airport.

Car parking is available for delegates at the College.

The college is a short walk from the bus/coach station and the city centre. The main railway station station is a longer walk (about 2.5 km). A taxi from the railway station to the college costs approximately £10, and there are also bus services available. Directions and maps are available on the college website.
