The Congress will be held at the Examination Schools, 81 High St, Oxford OX1 4BG, UK (map)

The historic Examination Schools is centrally located and can be reached on foot from the city centre.



Oxford, best known as the "city of dreaming spires ", is a beautiful medieval city with a rich and fascinating history. Oxford is small enough to explore on foot or by bike yet with the buzz and cultural offerings of a big city.

Its charming scenery has been the inspiration for many, including J.R.R. Tolkien who wrote ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and Lewis Carroll who created his ‘Alice in Wonderland’ here.  There are also many recognizable scenes from popular films such as  Harry Potter and the Inspector Morse serial.

Oxford is known worldwide as the home of Oxford University, the oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of the world's top universities.

Being a city university, it does not have a main campus; instead, all the facilities are scattered throughout the central part of the city. Wherever you go you will find interesting buildings from medieval to modern.
