Location and Accommodation

Swansea University is set in mature parkland and botanical gardens, overlooking Swansea Bay beach in south-west Wales, UK.

There’s stunning coastal scenery on our doorstep (we’re on the edge of the beautiful Gower Peninsula), yet we’re within easy reach of Swansea, which offers a thriving cultural scene and the best of modern city life.

This year’s conference will be hosted at the Swansea University Singleton Park Campus.
