We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to hold this Meeting in the beautiful city of Seville in Spain.

Seville is the largest town in Southern Spain and the city of Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro. The Hotel Hesperia Sevilla, one of Seville's classics, located close to one of the city’s main shopping areas and 5 minutes from the beautiful historic centre of the Andalusian capital will be the conference venue.

The Scientific Programme promises to be an exciting one. Some highlights include plenary addresses by leading scientists such as Dr. Andrew Papanicolau on magnetoencephalography in dyslexia and amnesia, Dr. George Northoff on fMRI and psychiatric conditions, as weel as Dr. Roy John on QEEG applications. The meeting will cover a wide amount of applied neuroscience fields. These include neurofeedback, peripheral biofeedback, brain-computer interfaces, neuro-rehabilitation, and neuronal reorganisation through behavioural methods, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and real-time self-regulation procedures using fMRI and MEG. For detailed information on the Programme please check the dedicated conference website .

Online registration is now open. Register by 15th March 1998 to take advantage of the early bird registration fees!

Venue

The University of Swansea was the twenty-ninth university to be established in Britain and is one of the four original colleges of the University of Wales, which was created in 1893. Since its foundation, the University has been a scientific and technical institution closely linked to the great industries of South Wales, as well as a renowned centre for the arts, serving the region’s community.

It is set in rolling parkland overlooking the majestic sweep of Swansea Bay. The campus is a stone’s throw from the old fishing village of Mumbles, whose unique seaside atmosphere is complemented by a vibrant social scene popular with students. Travel just a few minutes in the other direction and you reach the Maritime Quarter, a modern waterfront village complete with restaurants, art gallery, theatre and a busy marina.

The Inaugural Conference will be held in the Faraday Building and in Fulton House.

Travel Information

The earlier you book, the cheaper your train fare! Train Tickets purchased in advance offer the best value travel in both Standard and First Class. Available in limited numbers, the tickets are sold on a first come first serve basis, so book early if you want to get the best fares!

From London

  • Travelers arriving from London Heathrow have the option of taking the shuttle bus to Reading and boarding the west bound train there. This route saves traveling into London and is a little bit cheaper than via London. Fares depend on time-of-day, see here.
  • Alternatively, you can take the Heathrow Express, high speed rail link to London Paddington Station. This service runs every 15 minutes from terminals 1,2,3 or every 23 minutes from terminal 4 and takes 15 minutes: £13 (single); £25 (return).

  • Great Western Trains offer a very frequent service from London Paddington Station to Swansea High Street Station, stopping at Reading, Swindon, Bristol Parkway, Newport, Cardiff, Bridgend, Port Talbot and Neath. Travel time from London is about 4 hrs. Inquires: +44(0)8457 48 49 50.

  • At Swansea High Street Station, it is best to take a cab at about £5 (there is only a direct bus to the university campus via the Quadrant Bus Station). The centre of Swansea is about 2 miles away from Swansea University.

  • By car: the M4 motorway links London to Swansea, with connections to the M6, M5, M32, M42 and M50.

From Cardiff

  • Swansea is served by Cardiff International Airport, which is less than 50 miles from Swansea University. Inquires: +44(0)1446 711111.

  • From Cardiff airport, you first need to take a bus to the Cardiff Railway Station. The First Cymru bus company runs a frequent Shuttle service between Cardiff (Railway Station Bus Terminal) and Swansea (Quadrant Bus Station). Half hourly daytime service on weekdays and Saturday; last departure in Cardiff at 7.30 pm; bus journey to Swansea takes an hour. Tickets are purchased on boarding the bus. No prior booking required. Discounts available when traveling outside peak times. At the Quadrant bus station, you can either take a cab (about £5) or a bus to the university campus (bus numbers 2A, 2B, 3A, 14A, 43, 82 and 82A – leaving from Bays 1, 2 and 3).

  • A cab from Cardiff airport to Swansea is about £60. Alternatively, you can take a bus to the Cardiff Railway Station, where you can board the west bound train (Great Western Trains - see From London). Due to ill-timed connections, the trip from Cardiff Airport to Swansea High Street Station takes about 2.5 hrs.

  • If you are luckier with the connections, this trip can take about an hour less, via the free shuttle bus to Rhoose railway station (only about 1 mile away from the airport). There you have to catch a train to Bridgend, where you need to board the west bound train (Great Western Trains - see From London).

Parking on Campus 

  • There is a Visitors Car Park on campus, adjacent to the Main Entrance.
  • All vehicles using this car park Mon - Fri will be required to obtain a ticket from the machine which is located within the car park.
  • Please note the machine does give change, and will accept 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1 & £2 coins. The security staff based at the Main Entrance will not be able to provide change for the machine.
  • The charges are as follows:
    Up to 2 hours   £1:00
    Up to 4 hours   £2:00
    Over 4 hours    £3:00
