Collaboration with OCWC Annual Conference  

We are collaborating with the OCWC  Global Conference 2014, 23-25 April 2014, Ljubljana, Slovenia. (See also their flyer). For those interested in attending both conferences it is possible to fly from Ljubljana to London, Stansted, from where you can fly (from London Gatwick or London Heathrow) or take the train (via London Kings Cross) to Newcastle upon Tyne. EasyJet is a budget airline and flights are available (at the time of writing) for about £150 return to Ljubljana. The train departs at least once an hour and takes between 2.45 and 3.30 hours depending on the number of planned stops. Booking in advance is essential for the cheapest fares.
