Registration

Online registration planned to close 23rd June.
A limited number of delegates will be able to register on-site at the start of the conference.

It is with great pleasure that the ICUP 2017 organising committee is able to announce the opening of conference registration. We have worked hard to provide delegates with a variety of great value rates, which include three nights of on-campus accommodation, at either the business class hotel or modern student accommodation at Aston University. Also included are breakfast and lunch throughout the conference, the proceedings (in print and USB format), conference bag and peripherals such as a pen and notebook, our conference gift mug, plus the great-looking conference t-shirt, as well as Wi-Fi access.

On-site registration costs are listed in brackets (£).

We are excited at the prospect of seeing established contributors alongside a new generation of researchers.

The committee have decided to include accommodation within the delegate registration package, so that attendees are able to enjoy campus together, which will stimulate further discussion and interaction as well as a feeling of togetherness during the conference.

Online registration closes 16th June. Delegates will also be able to register on-site at the start of the conference.

Here is a typical example of a Conference Aston hotel room – very inviting, we are sure you will agree.

Here is the new Aston University student accommodation, which is modern and comfortable, with en-suite facilities. They are among the newest and most modern student accommodation in the UK.

Take a dip on campus, in the oldest swimming pool in Birmingham, dating from the Victorian period. Swimming and gym facilities are available free of charge to delegates.

The conference Chair, Dr Matthew Davies says “I have already registered for the conference and I selected the student accommodation, also because this option is a lower price than the hotel accommodation, while still being perfectly comfortable. Another bonus is that all delegates will enjoy breakfast together, which is served in the conference hotel. We believe that having everyone together for breakfast is an excellent way to start the day.”

Our Chair knows the campus very well, telling us that “There are many places to enjoy a drink on campus, such as the two British pubs that serve local and international drinks and the excellent hotel bar. This means there are lots of chances to discuss the day’s lectures with colleagues, rather than everyone making their separate ways to accommodation scattered around Birmingham. Everyone being together on campus is a great way to enjoy networking and the best urban pest discussions sometimes take place outside of a lecture theatre. For those who want to explore, the vibrant city of Birmingham is only a short walk from campus, or a brief taxi ride from the dedicated Aston University taxi rank, all of which is a real bonus of the conference location.”

Current exchange rates are especially favourable for delegates coming to the UK from the rest of Europe and also the USA, so now is the perfect time to register for the conference. The conference location is also well served by Birmingham International Airport, being only 20 minutes away by taxi, or a 10-15 minute direct train from Birmingham International to Birmingham New Street followed by a short walk.
