The conference venue is in the New Academic Building, Goldsmiths University of London.



If you wish to book accommodation for the duration of our conference you are welcome to use Goldsmiths Student Halls. The rates are very low compared to London hotels and B&Bs and they are conveniently located next to our conference venue. This is the link to the online booking system:

Please note that they have a policy of 3 nights minimum stay. However, if you wish to stay for 2 or 1 night only you can do so by using this promotional codeGOLDSTAFF14. The places with no minimum stay are limited and they have been reserved for bookings from today until 13th March 2014. If you wish to book a ‘no minimum stay’ room but the system does not allow you to do so it is probably because all rooms have been taken. If so please do get in touch with me and I should be able to release more rooms.

If you have any questions regarding accommodation please email me on
