The event will (pandemic permitting) take place on the Imperial College campus in South Kensington. Located in one of the most exclusive areas of London, the campus is wedged between Hyde Park, the museums on Exhibition and the going-out areas of South Kensington. While we hope that you will come for the content, there are many opportunities to go out for a coffee and a chat with a colleague you have not seen in a while.

For more details about the campus and how to get there see the description on the college webpage
