UK Network on Emergence and Physics far from Equilibrium

Third General Discussion Meeting

14-15 September, 2015

Back to NetworkPlus

Understanding and controlling far-from-equilibrium systems is recognized as a 21st Century "Grand Challenge" area by bodies such as the EPSRC. The "Emergence and Physics Far From Equilibrium" network was established by the EPSRC to draw together the UK's research activity and develop a plan for future research in this area. The network has held many successful focus meetings, highlighting the breadth and excitement of the field. The aim of the third, and final, general discussion meeting is to hear keynote talks from leading scientists, to discuss the form of the roadmap that will be presented to EPSRC, and to consider ways to continue the network.

Registration and payment:

The registration deadline has now passed.

Workshop fees:

The total cost for the workshop is £130. This includes bed and breakfast for the Sunday and Monday night (not ensuite), lunches, coffee and tea and the conference dinner on Monday night.

If you do not want the conference dinner please subtract £35.
If you do not want accommodation please subtract £35 per night.
If you want en suite accommodation (availability limited) please add £20 per night.

Additional nights / double rooms may be available, please contact Amin Doostmohammadi at

Members of the EPSRC Network in Emergence and Physics far from Equilibrium, as listed here, will have their fees directly paid for out of the Network grant. En suite rooms are limited in number and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please pay for any additional nights accommodation. People that register, but fail to attend the meeting without a good reason will be billed as we will have to pay college for pre-booked accommodation and meals.

Unfortunately, we are not permitted to support PhD students using funds from this grant. Students should therefore pay the fee and claim it from their training support fund.


All participants are responsible for arranging their own travel to the workshop.

Members of the EPSRC Network in Emergence and Physics far from Equilibrium may claim costs of up to £75 for travel. Please keep your receipts and follow these instructions to submit your claim after the workshop.

Getting to St Hilda’s:

Please see these directions to St. Hilda's College or Google maps

From outside the UK, fly to Heathrow if possible and take the coach to Oxford. Get off in St Clement’s which is 2 minutes walk from College. The bus goes directly from Terminals 1,2,3,5. Try to avoid Terminal 4, but if you end up there, take the free bus to T5 and then the coach to Oxford. A return ticket is £29, cash only. A return is much cheaper than 2 singles (£23 each).
