Delegate information

Thank you for registering for the Cambridge Neuroscience Launch Symposium. We look forward to welcoming you to the launch of Cambridge Neuroscience and hope that the following information will be of assistance. 


The final programme is available to download.


The launch will be held at the West Road Concert Hall, located behind King's College, off Queen's Road. There is wheelchair access to the auditorium and a hearing loop is installed for those who are hard of hearing. Delegates are asked to wear their badges at all times during the symposium.

Information regarding the Paykel Lecture satellite meeting, on Tuesday 18th September, is below.

Getting to West Road

Information on how to access the Concert Hall is available on the Concert Hall website.

Parking is extremely restricted in the vicinity of West Road, and we would strongly encourage delegates to use public transport to get to the venue. There is no parking within the Concert Hall grounds. There are approximately 50 Pay & Display spaces on West Road immediately opposite the hall. However, availability is usually very limited. 

The Citi4 bus has a stop a short walk from the Concert Hall (the West Road University Library stop). Taxis can be booked through Panther Taxis (01223 715715) or Camtax (01223 242424).


Please note that registrations on the day will not be permitted.

Delegates who have pre-registered are asked to collect their badge and delegate pack on Wednesday 19th September between 12:00pm-1:00pm, and on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st September between 8:30am-9:00am. Tea and coffee will be available during registration on Wednesday 19th September. There will be a skeleton staff available to assist outside of these times and during the breaks, but we would ask you to please try and register during the allocated times if at all possible.

If you are late for any of the sessions, please be aware that you may not be allowed into the auditorium until a suitable break in the programme.

Outstanding payments

Please note that all payment must be received in advance. We are unable to process payment on the day unless by prior arrangement.

Cheques should be made payable to the 'University of Cambridge' and sent to Dr Danielle Turner at the Department of Experimental Psychology, Cambridge, CB2 3EB as soon as possible.

Refreshments and lunches

Tea and coffee will be provided for all delegates during the morning and afternoon breaks, in addition to light buffet lunches on Thursday and Friday of the symposium.

Conference Dinner

The Conference Dinner will be held on Thursday 20th September at Newnham College. Professor Sir Gabriel Horn will be the after-dinner speaker.

Delegates are reminded that they will need to have registered separately and in advance for the dinner. Badges, which you are asked to wear at all times, will indicate whether you are registered for the dinner. Please bring your badge with you to the conference dinner.

The dinner will be in the College Hall from 7:15pm on Thursday 20th September.
