The 2016 conference will be held in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, a city well known for its raucous nightlife and excellent cultural attractions which include: The Sage, a music venue shaped like a giant silver slug; the Baltic, an ex-flour mill that shows fascinating modern art exhibitions, and a couple of years ago, housed the Turner prize nominees; and the Newcastle Centre for Life which is a very interactive space to learn about recent scientific developments. The peaceful Northumbrian countryside is also nearby and there are many white sandy beaches to visit, as well as walking in the Cheviots, and a trip to Kielder Lake and the Dark Skies Observatory a little bit further north. Newcastle city itself is also home to many lovely real ale pubss.
