Programme, last updated: 14 June 2013.


We look forward to meeting you on Sunday for early registration, which we will hold between 2pm and 6pm, at 'The Inn at Woburn', Woburn village. We will not be arranging transport for this as we are aware that so many of you are arriving into the area at so many different times. We hope that many of you will join us for this gathering so that we can complete your registration details and you can meet with colleagues from around the world. Tea, with scones, jam and clotted cream will be served as light refreshments - 'The Inn' is the birth place of Afternoon Tea.

For those arriving later on Sunday, Registration will continue at The Sculpture Gallery, Woburn Abbey, on Monday morning from 8.15am. The Conference opening sessions start at 9am.

Bus arrangements

A detailed timetable for the full week is available. On Monday morning, for those staying at The Hub hotels (The Jury's Inn and Encore Ramada) we have arranged a coach pick-up, by 'Soul's Coaches' from Midsummer Boulevard, outside The Jury's Inn and will depart at 7.45am; subsequent mornings the coach will depart at 8am.

A coach will pick up delegates staying in Woburn village, from outside The Inn at Woburn, departure will be at 8.15am; subsequent mornings the coach will depart at 8.30am.

Please be on time for these coach pickups - thank you.

Excursion to Bletchley Park, Wednesday afternoon 18th July 2012

We have secured a very special visit for you to the famous Bletchley Park on the afternoon of Wednesday 18th July, two of the most senior and experienced guides and lecturers of Bletchley Park will be joining us for lunch at 1pm at The Sculpture Gallery, Woburn. After lunch they will then accompany us on two coaches and set the scene for your visit to (i) The Home of the Codebreakers (ii) to see where the first semi programmable computer was invented - Colossus (iii) the Alan Turing Bombe Machine.

The guides will also be able to point you in the direction of a host of other attractions at Bletchley Park:

You may prefer to search the Bletchley Park website for yourselves to seek other attractions that you may desire and take the opportunity to see – there is much to explore at Bletchley Park,

Bletchley Park has much of interest for wives, partners and children, who may also be travelling with you to this Conference, for them to enjoy this experience with you.

Your registration fee includes this excursion (coach transport, entrance fee and guided tour). If you would like others who are travelling with you to come along there will be a charge of £10.

Two coaches will leave from the Sculpture Gallery at 2pm on Wednesday afternoon, 18th July. The Park closes at 5pm, at which point the coaches will return us to the hotels.

Conference Banquet

On Thursday afternoon, coaches will be provided to return participants to their hotels before the banquet, if desired. We will return to the Gallery for the banquet with the following pick up times:

The banquet will start with drinks from 19.15 and the meal at 20.00.

Coaches will be provided to return everyone from The Gallery to their hotels after the meal.
