Practical Information

The conference will be held at the Selwyn College in Cambridge, the renown university town and administrative centre of the county of Cambridgeshire, England. It lies in East Anglia about 80 km (50 miles) north-by-east of London.

Selwyn College was founded in 1882 in memory of Bishop Selwyn. He was a Cambridge graduate who rowed in the first ever University Boat Race. Although the foundation of the College initially gave it a link with the Anglican Church, for over 40 years its membership has been open to those of all faiths, or none.
