International Workshop on
NANOALLOYS ON ATOMIC SCALE: Theoretical and Experimental Studies of Structures and Reactions
As a part of the Royal Society funded project, we are delighted to announce a special international workshop on “Nanoalloys on Atomic Scale: Theoretical and Experimental Studies of Structures and Reactions” on the 5th of December 2016 at the University of Birmingham, UK. Attendance is free for people from academic institutions, but please register for ticket here before 28th November 2016 so that we know the numbers for catering purposes. We are still accepting poster contribution, so please send your poster abstracts to email@example.com until the closing date for registration. The details about the preparation of the abstracts and the posters can be found in the FAQs below. Due to limited space, registration will be capped so early registration is advisable. Participations from industry are most welcome and should contact the organizer for details.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
The University of Birmingham benefits from excellent transport links providing access to numerous destinations up and down the UK for visitors.
The University has its own railway station on campus, known as ‘University Station’. University Station is only two stops from Birmingham New Street where visitors can catch trains to locations all across the country. The journey between the University and Birmingham New Street takes approximately eight minutes. For all timetable information visit National Rail Enquiries. it takes about 15 minutes to walk from the 'University Station' to the Nicoson Building on the Edgbaston Park Road.
There are approximately eight local bus services directly serving the University per hour. Numbers 61, X62, 63 and X64 travel to the University’s Edgbaston and Selly Oak campuses via the Bristol Road, while number 99 also take you to the Edgbaston Park Road. The services all run frequently from the city centre. There is a travel information office outside New Street Station in the city centre, where you can obtain bus timetables and departure point information. Maps can be found throughout the city centre indicating bus stop locations. For more information on these services visit the National Express West Midlands website.
Visitors to campus of University of Birmingham are requested to park in the following locations:
- North Car Park (access via Pritchatts Rd) Sat Nav Postcode B15 2SB
- Pritchatts Road Car Park (at the junction with Vincent Drive) Sat Nav Postcode B15 2QU
- Pritchatts Park (next car park along after Pritchatts Rd car park)
The three car parks above are all pay & display car parks and are on the periphery so can be accessed without entering the main campus.
