The workshop will be held at The College of
Corpus Christi and the Blessed Virgin Mary at the University of Cambridge.
Registration, the coffee breaks, and the plenary sessions will be in the McCrum
Lecture Theatre; the parallel sessions will be in the Harley-Mason
Room and the Law Room. You can find a pdf map of Corpus here. We have reserved college accommodation at Corpus
for conference participants that can be booked until 15 July 2013:

Hall of Corpus Christi College.
- Standard accommodation. The standard rooms have shared
facilities and are located in New Court of the college. They can be
booked for £ 72.50 a night.
- En-suite accommodation. En-suite rooms have a private bathroom
and are located in Library Court of the college or in the
Beldham Building (on the other side of Bene't Street). They can be

You can book these rooms via the
Christi Online Booking Form.
You'll need to enter the dates of your stay in the calendar pulldown menu and add the
Promotional Code LOWE13 in the appropriate field (Important: without this
promotional code, you will not be able to book the conference rooms.). Scrolling down, you will
see the two mentioned room types offered by Corpus. Please check the Terms & Conditions of the booking site:
bookings can be cancelled with a full refund (minus £ 10 administration charge) if cancelled
more than two weeks before the first booked night.
Alternatively, you can book your own accommodation in Cambridge. A convenient website is Cambridge Rooms where many colleges offer their student
rooms over the summer and some of the other colleges have cheaper rooms on offer. Currently, there
is availability at Sidney Sussex for £ 44 a night and
at Christ's for £ 47 a night (both in the city
centre and within easy walking distance of Corpus). Cambridge is very popular with tourists in
September and availability can quickly disappear.
The standard hotel booking websites give you a choice of many hotels
and B&Bs in Cambridge:

In May 2013, the Swiss airline Darwin
Airline has announced that they are starting direct flights to Cambridge
Airport (CBG) from Amsterdam (AMS), Geneva (GVA), Milan (MXP) and Paris (CDG) in
September, so just in time for our conference. This might be an interesting alternative
to the standard routes.
Many people travelling to Cambridge arrive at Stansted Airport (STN) and take
the direct train from the airport to Cambridge (30 to 50 minutes). If you arrive at any
of the other London airports (LHR, LCY, LGW), you'll need to take public transport to
either London King's Cross station or London Liverpool Street Station. Cambridge is a 1
hour train journey from these stations. Another alternative could be to fly into
Norwich Airport (NWI) and take the train from there (90 minutes by train), thus
avoiding the hassle of navigating London public transport.
