Dear Colleague

I have pleasure in inviting you to attend the 2009 Annual Conference to be held from September 2nd – 5th 2009, at the University of Manchester and submit a paper for our Conference.

The venue is situated in the centre of Manchester and is located about 10 miles from Manchester Airport which is served by both national and international flights. If travelling by train, the University is only a short walk from both Piccadilly and Oxford Road stations.

The Conference will be held at the new 'University Place' which opened in May 2008. The new development, with its ultramodern eight-story building, distinctive rotunda and 1,000 seat lecture theatre is at the heart of the University of Manchester on Oxford Road. 'University Place' offers spacious exhibition areas, seminar rooms and a 400-seat capacity restaurant as well as state of the art technology. Its publicity boasts 'exceptional facilities and a first class service'.

Looking forward to seeing you in Manchester.

Danny Durant
Conference Chair
