Collating news and events for the UK Systems Research Community

Fourth Annual UK System Research Challenges Workshop, March 27–29, 2019

Location & Transport

The workshop will be held at the Redworth Hall, Northumberland. We are providing coach transport between the venue and Newcastle city centre (Urban Sciences Building, 1 Science Square, Science Central, NE4 5TG) as follows:

Note that this is not a shuttle service but a single coach in each direction. For those travelling on from Newcastle after the workshop by train, we would suggest booking a train after 15:30 to allow for delays.


Thanks to generous contributions from our sponsors, accommodation will be included in the registration fee (£60 for students, £125 otherwise).
