ACM WiSec 2014 and RFIDSec'14
will be held at St. Anne's College, Oxford
. This includes both the conference and workshop sessions, and accommodation for their attendees.
Getting to Oxford
Oxford is easily accessible from several major airports. London Heathrow (LHR
) and London Gatwick (LGW
) are major hubs for long-haul international flights; attendees from within the European Union can also look at flights into Birmingham International (BHX
). All of these airports have convenient links to central Oxford:
- The Oxford Bus Company's Airline service provides regular coaches from Heathrow and Gatwick to Gloucester Green coach station. At time of writing, return fares were £29 from Heathrow, and £37 from Gatwick. The journey from Heathrow takes about an hour and a quarter; from Gatwick, about two hours.
- CrossCountry runs regular trains from Birmingham International Airport to Oxford Railway Station. Fares vary depending on time of day; the journey itself is about an hour. Tickets and schedules are available from the National Rail website.
London's Stansted (STN
) or Luton (LTN
) airports are also connected to Oxford, albeit less conveniently, via the National Express
Oxford is connected by rail to major destinations in the UK, including Reading, Southampton, Birmingham New Street, and London Paddington. Attendees considering entering the UK via Eurostar
will arrive at London St. Pancras International, which is linked to Paddington by the London Underground. (Warning: the London Underground can be very crowded at peak times!)
Train, ticket, and booking information for all UK trains can be found on the National Rail website.
The Oxford Bus Company (the X90
) and Stagecoach (the Oxford Tube
) run regular coach services between Oxford's Gloucester Green Coach Station, and central London's Victoria Coach Station, with a journey time of about 2 hours. Additionally, National Express
runs coaches from many other cities across the UK.
