Annual Meeting 2013
Annual Project Meeting 2013
Wednesday 24. – Friday 26.Â April 2013
at University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK
Start: Wednesday 24 April at 08:30
Finish: Friday 26 April at 13:00
Travel to UEA and Norwich:
Norwich is easily accessible by train from Northern Europe, with regular train services, and a two-hour journey from London and five hours from Paris and Brussels. London Stansted is the nearest major airport (65 miles) and there is a regular bus service from Stansted to Norwich city centre which takes a couple of hours. Gatwick and Heathrow Airports are rather further away. The airport bus also operates between these most distant airports, the University of East Anglia and Norwich city centre, but it can be a long and tedious journey. The alternatives in both cases are to take the train to central London (115 miles from Norwich), the underground train to Liverpool Street Station and a train to Norwich, or to hire a car. The London to Norwich journey time is approx. 2 hours. Norwich Airport is by far the most convenient option because it is just a short taxi ride away from the University. It can be an expensive destination, but for international flights please do consider flying with KLM (and KLM partners e.g. Air France and North West) to Amsterdam and get a connecting flight to Norwich. There are some really good deals available with KLM where the cost of the Amsterdam-Norwich leg of the journey is very low. Ferries also operate between Harwich and the Hook of Holland, Hamburg and Esbjerg.
62 rooms are booked for us at UEA Campus Accomodation. Booking details will be sent out to CARBOCHANGE members together with registration forms.
If you prefer a hotel stay, please download the Hotels in Norwich, and contact the hotel directly.
Please remember to check whether you need a travel visum for the UK. A visum is required for citizens of certain non-European countries. Please contact the CARBOCHANGE project office if you need a letter of invitation in order to apply for the visum. Information on visa requirements forÂ the UKÂ can be found here.
