Oxford established itself as a centre of academic excellence in the thirteenth century, with the founding of its first three colleges and academic Halls. The University is the oldest in the UK, and forms the heart of a fascinating city. As well as a priceless heritage, modern Oxford offers a wide range of entertainments and shopping options, and within a short distance lie the Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon, home of William Shakespeare, and Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.
All scientific sessions will be held at St Catherine’s College, Manor Road, Oxford, UK. St Catherine’s College founded in 1962, is one of Oxford’s newer colleges. Designed by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen, the College has a traditional layout in quadrangle style with gardens. Its situation and architecture make it a most successful conference venue.
