2018 UK Antarctic Science Conference

2018 UK Antarctic Science Conference

The Department of Geography at Durham University is delighted to be hosting the 2018 UK Antarctic Science Conference on 10th - 12th September, 2018. The conference will include oral and poster presentations over two days (the conference will run from Tuesday morning to Wednesday lunchtime, with an optional icebreaker on the Monday evening). We welcome contributions on any aspect of Antarctic Science.

The conference dinner will take place in Hatfield College on the evening of Tuesday 11th September. Accommodation has been reserved in nearby Collingwood College. Other accommodation options are available for those who wish to make their own arrangements.

Durham is a spectacular cathedral city with a rich heritage. Narrow cobbled streets wind their way around the rocky peninsula to the majestic Norman cathedral and castle, which are a designated World Heritage Site. The city is well served by motorway access, Durham railway station and Newcastle International Airport (30 minutes by car, 1 hour by rail).

Registration (attendance, accommodation, dinner) closes 31st August, 2018.

The conference will begin with an informal event on the evening of Monday 10th September from 18:30 onwards.

This will be held in the upstairs section of The Head of Steam, which offers a range of food and drink. The Head of Steam is located at Reform Place on North Road, which is a 5 minute walk from the train station.

For those of you already at the accommodation in Collingwood College, a group of us will be leaving the Department of Geography at 18:15, meeting outside the North entrance, opposite the Bill Bryson Library.
