The venue is a restored building of the historic Bristol docks on the floating harbor. Bristol is a vibrant University city, easy to reach from other parts of the UK, only 90 miles west of London, with an international airport and frequent connections to the rest of Europe.  It is fetted for its association with creative industries, home of BBC nature programmes and a significant concentration of the European aerospace industry.   
A programme of workshops in social network analysis techniques, theories and software applications will precede the conference on the 27th of June. Details can be found here:
