Annual Conference

The 1998 annual UK AVS+UNIRAS User Group Conference is again being held at the University of Birmingham Conference Park on 2 - 3 November 1998. The Conference is aimed at AVS and UNIRAS users from both industry and higher education. Advanced Visual Systems will, as always, be represented by key management and technical personnel, so the Conference provides a valuable opportunity to find out about new developments. Last year's event was well received, with the quality of both the presentations and the environment coming in for praise.

The Conference will have exclusive use of Hornton Grange, on the University of Birmingham Conference Park. Hornton Grange was built during the early years of this century as an Edwardian style gentleman's residence which now stands in its own attractive and peaceful grounds within the Conference Park. It has its own bar and Conservatory Dining Room with 32 modern and highly specified en-suite bedrooms in the adjacent North and South wings. The Conference Park itself is located very close to the University campus, as well as offering ample free car parking it has good rail links with Birmingham International Airport and the rest of the UK.

Presentations are welcomed on various topics:

We welcome short abstracts on proposed presentations or full papers which will be published as part of the Conference proceedings. Accepted talks and papers will entitle the presenting author to a free day registration for the Conference for the day of the presentation or reduced rate registration for the whole Conference.
