Travelling to a seminar hels at Lancaster University

We invite all who are interested to attend in person. Prior to each seminar, the venue will be posted on this page and will also be sent to registered members. The venue location can be found on the downloadable campus map, which can be found here. If you drive to the University, visitor parking areas are clearly indicated and are no more than 50-100m from a building. Pay and Display parking costs £2 for 2 hours and can be paid in cash or by card. Buses also stop directly on campus. Full travel details can be found here.

Alternatively, those who have registered with our group can join us remotely via WebEx video conferencing. Full details can be found on the right of this page.

Online Seminar Access

We make use of a video conferencing application called WebEx.

This software can run as a small installation on your computer, (like Skype), or can run as a 'script' within your web browser, provided that your browser is set to run active scripts. The latter option is very helpful for those who are unable to install software on their computer because admin rights have been removed.

To download a userguide in advance of a meeting, click here.

The next online meeting can be accessed by clicking the WebEx symbol below on the day of the seminar only.
(You will need to use the password provided in the reminder email sent to you as a registered member one week before the next seminar.
Contact Anthony Greenwood if you did not receive this)
