Opened in 1881 as a civic college, Nottingham has award-winning campuses in its home city, China and Malaysia. It can claim DH Lawrence as its most famous graduate, 2 Nobel winners amongst its alumni and staff, and Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and HG Wells amongst its most notable visiting lecturers.
Remaining at the heart of the University’s global strategy today is the 1928 vision first realised by Sir Jesse Boot (of Boots the Chemist and University benefactor) – core values built on "ambition, engagement, partnership, civic responsibility and longevity".
LILAC 2019 will take place in the Engineering and Science Learning Centre (ESLC) and Keighton Auditorium on University Park campus.
Conference registration, poster exhibitions, parallel sessions and the CILIP IL Group AGM will all be held in the ESLC, along with lunch and refreshments.
The Keighton Auditorium, a 3 to 4 minute walk from the ESLC, will host all keynotes.
You can find both buildings on the University Park campus map, No. 54 (ESLC) and 56 (Keighton).
Joining instructions will be available a few weeks before the conference.
Wireless internet access is available campus-wide. If you are visiting from an institution that participates in the eduroam scheme, you can login to the secure eduroam service using your usual username and password. The UoN-guest WiFi service is also available for visitors to the University.
The networking evening will be held at Nottingham Contemporary on Wednesday 24th April from 19:00 to 21:00. Food and drinks will be provided. Nottingham Contemporary is one of Britain’s largest and leading centres for contemporary art. The evening will include a talk from the curator about the current exhibition and a tour of the galleries.
Nottingham Contemporary is located in the city centre close to the Lace Market tram stop.
The conference dinner will take place on Thursday 25th April from 19:30 and will be held at Colwick Hall, in the Lakeside Pavilion. Colwick Hall Hotel is a magnificent Palladian style Georgian country house mansion nestling in over sixty acres of parkland, dating back to Saxon times and once the ancestral home of Lord Byron. After dinner we will present the conference awards and there will be music and dancing until 23:30.
Free coaches will transport delegates to the venue from both University Park (18:45) and city centre (18:50) locations, and will return at the end of the evening (23:30).
