Accommodation

We are able to offer accommodation to 100 attendees. Accommodation is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and priority will be given to international attendees who register in time and present an abstract. For UK-based attendees, accommodation will only be considered for those residing outside the West Midlands.

Eligible attendees will be offered a 2-night accommodation at Bournbrook, a new residential development that opened its doors in September 2017.
