Location and Venue

Fulton Building, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK, BN1

Brighton is located on England's south coast in the county of East Sussex. Falmer Station is directly opposite the campus. You can get from Brighton to Falmer in nine minutes by train. Four trains an hour go to Falmer during the day. You can also change at Lewes for Falmer, if you are coming from the east. The journey time from London to Brighton is just under an hour

The University of Sussex boasts a most beautiful campus, situated in the rolling parkland and countryside of the South Downs National Park. The campus comprises a collection of historic listed buildings, green spaces and modern teaching facilities and accommodation.

The city of Brighton and Hove - a (sunny) seaside city is famous for its beach, shops and nightlife. Dynamic and cosmopolitan, it’s the city’s sense of inclusivity that we hope to share with conference attendees.
