The conference is being held at the University of Kent
The University of Kent was granted its Royal Charter in 1965 and the first students arrived in the October of that year. The main campus of the University is set in the beautiful city of Canterbury. Canterbury is a small city with a warm and friendly atmosphere, within easy reach of both London and France.

The University of Kent has four colleges: Rutherford, Keynes, Eliot and Darwin.

Canterbury claims to have been permanently inhabited since pre-Roman times. Augustine established his first cathedral and abbey around AD 600, and in medieval times the city became a centre for pilgrimage to the shrine of St Thomas à Becket, made famous by Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The playwright Christopher Marlowe was born here, and a few years ago the Treaty of Canterbury paved the way for the building of the Channel Tunnel.

The city centre today shows much of its medieval history in ancient streets and buildings, and of course the world-famous cathedral, which is the venue for the University's degree ceremonies. The cathedral, St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's church make up a World Heritage Site - one of only 15 such sites in the British Isles. High street
Apart from the attractions within the city itself, Canterbury is well sited for access to famous locations such as Leeds Castle, Rochester with its Dickens connections and castles at Dover, Walmer, Deal and Richborough. The county of Kent is known as the 'Garden of England', with many classic villages, castles, walking/cycling trails, orchards and vineyards.
